Mark 5:27 ESV
She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment.
I have two favorite passages that of Jonah and the woman with the issue of blood. What I love about the woman is her risk of faith! Because of her flow of blood (menstruation) she wasaccording to the Law unclean and not permitted to touch a man lest she make him also unclean. (Leviticus 15:19-30) This woman was at the end of her rope, probably an outcast of her community because of her continued condition. She had been bleeding for twelve years! She was broke because she spent all her money putting her faith in man. This could be her final act, pounding in the last nail of her ruined reputation and status. But she was convinced that she need only to stretch out in faith to Jesus because He alone had the power to heal her!
