Jesus goes on to Jairus' house, but before arriving is interrupted again. This time, by Jairus' servant. "Your daughter is dead. Don't bother the Rabbi more by having him come." I wonder if in this moment Jairus is annoyed at that Jesus healed another daughter on the way. I wonder if he's angry at this woman who took Jesus' time that was supposed to be given to his daughter. Jesus overhears their conversation. He tells Jairus, "Don't fear, just believe." And they keep walking toward his house. Outside, a wailing party has gathered. He tells them to hush, "She's just sleeping," he says. They laugh at him and continue to wail. He goes inside, tells the girl to arise and then tells those around her to give her something to eat.
That day, two daughters were restored. One young, one old. One rich, one poor. One dead, one slowly dying. Both worth Jesus' time. Both made whole because of faith.
