Raising from the Dead of Jairus' Daughter

Raising from the Dead of Jairus' Daughter is described by Mark (5:21-24; 3:35-43). A synagogue presider named Jairus was in despair because his only daughter was dying. Having heard about Christ's gift to heal he knelt before him and begged to save his daughter. While they were on the way to Jairus's house, a messenger came and said that the girl had died; there was no need to go on. Nevertheless, Jesus continued on to Jairus's house. When he arrived he told to grieving family not to mourn the girl, then came up to her, took her hand and commanded her to rise. When she did so, he asked the amazed parents to keep the miracle a secret.
