The Holy Bible : Revised Standard Version Second Catholic edition (2006), with the ecclesiastical approval of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Thomas Nelson Publishing for Ignatius Press. The Sandwich, A Literary Tool, Used To Show How Busy A Person Is. : The Sandwich, A Literary Tool, Used To Show How Busy A Person Is. Mark will now tell the story of Jairus' Daughter and will “sandwich” in the story about the hemorrhaging woman. Why put the short story in the middle of a larger story. Mark’s Jesus is just what his Roman audience wants a fast paced, dynamic, important leader. 5:21-24 Jairus' Daughter & the Woman With a Hemorrhage : 5:21-24 Jairus' Daughter & the Woman With a Hemorrhage On the way to Jairus' house, Jesus, just like us encounters delays, and obstacles on the road. Jairus’s faith saved his daughter but not before the woman touched Jesus and slowed His progress on the way. Jairus : Jairus Jairus was an elected leader of the local synagogue. He was responsible for supervising the weekly worship, running the school, and caring for the building. Many synagogue leaders had close ties to the Pharisees. It is likely, therefore, that some synagogue leaders had been pressured not to support Jesus. For Jairus to bow before Jesus was a significant and perhaps daring act of respect and worship. 5:24-34 Again, An Issue of Faith : 5:24-34 Again, An Issue of Faith Her disorder would have made her ritually unclean (Leviticus 15:25-27) It would have excluded her from most social contact and worship at the Temple. She desperately wanted Jesus to heal her, but she knew that her bleeding would cause Jesus to be unclean under Jewish law if she touched Him. Jesus’ miraculous healing of a woman who had been hemorrhaging (slowly or intermittently) for 12 years was recorded in three of the four Gospels (Mt 9:20–22; Mk 5:25–34; Lk 8:43–48). 5:32-34 A Lesson On Faith : 5:32-34 A Lesson On Faith This woman had heard about Jesus’ miracle-working power and had come to Capernaum to find Him (tradition says she was from Caesarea Philippi). Jesus was not angry with this woman for touching Him. He knew she had touched Him, but He stopped and asked who did it in order to teach everyone present something about faith. Although the woman was healed when she touched Him, Jesus said her faith caused the cure. Genuine faith involves action. Faith that isn’t put into action is not faith at all. She walked 30 miles in faith. James 2:20 Do you want proof, you ignoramus, that faith without works is useless? 5:35-43 Funeral Traditions : 5:35-43 Funeral Traditions Loud weeping and wailing were customary at a person’s death bed. Lack of it was the ultimate disgrace and disrespect. There were some people, usually women, who made mourning a profession and were paid by the dead person’s family to weep over the body. On the day of death, the body was carried through the streets, followed by mourners, family members, and friends. When I Die, What Will Happen? : When I Die, What Will Happen? From: Summa Theologica, St. Thomas Aquinas, III q. 69-86 When I Die, What Will Happen? : When I Die, What Will Happen? Souls that depart from their bodies at death are assigned to certain places. Souls are spirits and don’t have measurable shapes or sizes. The assignment of a departed soul to its place occurs at the instant it is separated from the body. Souls fit for heaven, go there. Souls in mortal sin are, by their own free choice and decision, assigned to hell. Souls in God’s grace but not yet ready for heaven because of some spot or blemish are detained in purgatory. “And whoever says a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come” (Mt 12:32). “the age to come” indicates that sins can be forgiven after death. Purgatory is Biblical : Purgatory is Biblical But where? The pure go to heaven and those with mortal (deadly sin) go to hell so there must be a middle place that we call purgatory. Such a soul at the moment of death, even if free from mortal sin, might have venial sin (1 John 5:16), or has not yet paid temporal punishment due to forgiven sin. We are all sinners and will require God’s mercy to enter heaven. Even though we may be forgiven of our sins, there is still a price to pay; “I tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the very last copper [penny]”. Luke 12:59 . Revelation 21:27 : Revelation 21:27 To stand before God, we must be perfect and pure in every way. Even the smallest “white” lie will require purification prior to our entry into heaven. As a soul rises to heaven, like a balloon it may be prevented from reaching its goal because a weight of sin might still be attached to it so that it is not free to reach its goal. Revelation 21:27 - But nothing unclean shall enter it, nor any one who practices abomination or falsehood, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life. Tour of the Summa : Tour of the Summa Heaven, hell and purgatory are places and states of being. No soul in heaven or in hell may ever leave its state, but it is possible by divine dispensation that a soul may leave its place and come in apparition before the eyes of people on earth. If your balloon is filled with the breath of life you will rise, yes you may stop along the way but ultimately you will reach your goal. If your balloon lacks the breath of life, you will surely fall. Compassion : Compassion The mourners began to laugh at Jesus when he said, “The child isn’t dead; she is only asleep.” The girl was dead, but Jesus used the image of sleep to indicate that her condition was temporary and that she would be restored. Jesus tolerated the crowd’s abuse in order to teach an important lesson about maintaining hope and trust in Him. Jesus not only demonstrated great power, he also showed tremendous compassion. Unclean? : Unclean? Rabbis of the day would have considered the: Demoniac The Hemorrhaging woman The dead girl To be unclean and would have avoided them. Jesus didn’t consider them unclean and broke with tradition by touching each one. He gave the parents of the little girl orders that no one should know this. Why? He wanted the facts to speak for themselves, and the time was not yet right for a major confrontation with the religious leaders. Jesus still had much to accomplish, and He didn’t want people following Him just to see His miracles. Did Jesus Break the Old Covenant Purification Laws? : Did Jesus Break the Old Covenant Purification Laws? 1:40 When He touched a leper. 5:29 When the “hemorrhaging” woman touched Him. 5:41 When he touched Jarius’s “dead” child. Jesus made the leper clean with His touch so the leper couldn’t defile. The woman touched Him but then was no longer afflicted and thus couldn’t defile. He touched the dead but they came back to life and thus couldn’t defile. You do not have the permission to view this presentation. In order to view it, please contact the author of the presentation.
