Then Jesus answered and said unto her ‘O woman great is thy faith; be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

25. Luke5:18 And behold men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in …And they let him down through the [roof] into the midst before Jesus.

Mark 5:22, 35-42 Jairus the ruler of the synagogue, whose daughter was near death and then died while Jesus was ministering to the woman with the issue of blood, says in v 36: “Be not afraid only believe.’ And Jesus suffered no man to follow him to Jairus’ house except Peter, James and John ‘And he said to them …why…weep?

VII. The Role of Forgiveness
