Introduction:

A. Todd's wife bought a new line of expensive cosmetics guaranteed to make her look years younger. After a lengthy sitting before the mirror applying the "miracle" products, she asked, "Darling, honestly, what age would you say I am?" Looking over her carefully, Todd replied, "Judging from your skin, twenty; your hair, eighteen; and your figure, twenty five." "Oh, you flatterer!" she gushed. "Hey, wait a minute!" Todd interrupted. "I haven't added them up yet."

1. Lets turn to Matthew 9:18 we are going to start at verse 18 to show the context of this miracle

B. Last week we examined the healing or the resurrection of Jairus’ daughter.

1. This morning we are going to examine the healing of the woman with the issue of blood

Matthew 9:18-22 NKJV

While He spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped Him, saying, "My daughter has just died, but come and lay Your hand on her and she will live." {19} So Jesus arose and followed him, and so did His disciples. {20} And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. {21} For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." {22} But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour.

a. As I said last week this story is found in the three synoptic gospels, Matthew, Mark, and Luke

2. This woman had been suffering for 12 years

a. If we turn to Luke 8:43 we will see that she had spent all she had on doctors and nurses and yet she was still suffering

Luke 8:43 NKJV

Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any,

b. She was now destitute

c. And along with that she was an outcast, unclean

(1) According to Mosaic law a woman was unclean during her customary time of a woman, in other words during her period

(a) The issue of blood could only have been a 12 year period

i) Lets turn to Luke 8:43-48

II. Body

A. As we examine the woman’s courage and daring

Luke 8:43-48 (NKJV)

Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, 44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. 45 And Jesus said, "Who touched Me?" When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, "Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ’Who touched Me?’ " 46 But Jesus said, "Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me." 47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately. 48 And He said to her, "Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace."

1. Can you imagine the scene?

a. Jesus, His disciples and the crowd are beginning to go to Jairus’ house to heal Jairus’ little girl.
