Matthew 9

Matthew 9 is about Jesus’ healing miracles.  It references, to me, one of the most humorous situations surrounding a miracle.  It is where the woman that has a hemorrhage comes up behind Jesus because she has the faith that if she can just touch Jesus’ clothes she will be healed.  They were walking through a packed crowd when she reaches Jesus and touches his clothes and he said, “Who touched me?”  Peter’s response in Luke 8 just makes me laugh because you can see the confusion in his words, “we’re walking through a mob with people touching us from all sides and you want to know who touched you???”  I just think that is humorous.

One thing that seems to be rude is where Jesus is in the house of a dead girl and tells those with him, Peter, John, James, and the child’s mother and father that she is not dead but sleeping and the scripture says “they laughed at him knowing that she was dead.”  Was it the apostles?  Was it her parents?  Or just who was laughing at him?

Have a great day,
