(11) Jesus heals in response

One day Jesus was on his way to the official's home.
He was asked, by the official, to come see his daughter who has just died.
As Jesus and his disciples were going,
a woman who had had a hemorrhage for 12 years came up behind him.
She touched the fringe of Jesus' robe
for she thought, "If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed."
Jesus realized at once that healing power had gone out from him,
so he turned around and asked,
"Who touched my clothes?"
"Look at this crowd pressing around you.
What do you mean 'who touched me?'"
His disciples said to him.
Then the woman came and fell at his feet and told him what she had done.
and Jesus said to her,
"Daughter, your faith has made you well."
and the woman was healed at that moment.
