Jesus Has This Effect On Dead People

This week out at the prison Bible study we were studying the healing of Jairus' daughter in Mark 5.

Casey was discussing the story, sharing his observations, and while he was sharing he said this:

"Jesus has this affect on dead people."

Casey was connecting the raising of Jairus' daughter with the healing of the woman with the issue of blood (which occurs in the midst of the story).

Both women are dead, one physically, the other socially and ritually. Jesus comes into contact with both, bringing both to life.

Casey's observation startled me. Its simplicity and its truth. So, so many of us have been brought to life.

Jesus has this affect on dead people.
