Matthew 9:18-26; Mark 5:22-43; Luke 8:40-56
Jairus’s daughter was sick. Jairus went to see Jesus. “Please come and heal my daughter.” Jesus went with Jairus. As they walked to Jairus’s house, a helper came and said that Jairus’s little girl was already dead.
Jesus said, “Don’t be afraid. She will be fine.” When they got to Jairus’s house, Jesus told everyone to leave the little girl’s room. Then Jesus and the little girl’s parents went into the room.
Jesus took the little girl by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” Right away she stood up. Jesus told her parents to give her something to eat. Her parents were amazed to see Jesus’ power over death.
