“Who touched me?”

Woman with issue of blood.

25 Now a woman was there who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years. 26 She had endured a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all that she had. Yet instead of getting better, she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 for she kept saying, “If only I touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 At once the bleeding stopped, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30 Jesus knew at once that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 His disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing against you and you say, ‘Who touched me?’” 32 But he looked around to see who had done it. 33 Then the woman, with fear and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before him and told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your disease.” New English Translation (NET Bible)

  1. We have been considering our shame and guilt the pay few weeks in our sermon series. This past Sunday we weren’t thru Luke 4: 18-19 how Jesus started with the marginalized, rejected and outcast who were probably dealing the most with shame. I had not thought of this angle before but it was made real when we walked thru his healings and dealings with society. The woman in this picture was definately an untouchable but she pressed in to seek healing. So this picture is very strong reminder of what I learned anew about having the mind of Christ and being a touchable ambassador. Thanks for your wonderful art to bring the scripture alive.
