  1. 1. A large crowd followed and pressed aroundhim. 25 And a woman was there who had beensubject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She hadsuffered a great deal under the care of manydoctors and had spent all she had, yet insteadof getting better she grew worse.Friday, 17 May 13
  2. 2. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came upbehind him in the crowd and touched hiscloak, 28 because she thought,“If I just touchhis clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediatelyher bleeding stopped and she felt in her bodythat she was freed from her suffering.Friday, 17 May 13
  3. 3. 30 At once Jesus realized that power had goneout from him. He turned around in the crowdand asked,“Who touched my clothes?”31 “You see the people crowding against you,”his disciples answered,“and yet you canask,‘Who touched me?’ ”Friday, 17 May 13
  4. 4. 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see whohad done it. 33 Then the woman, knowing whathad happened to her, came and fell at his feetand, trembling with fear, told him the wholetruth. 34 He said to her,“Daughter, your faithhas healed you. Go in peace and be freed fromyour suffering.”Friday, 17 May 13
