I was struck by this scene in Pastor David's sermon from Luke 8:43-48. You know the one where the shy, sick woman pressing through the massive crowd and touches (David said it was better translated "clutches") the hem of Jesus's garment. Jesus knew immediately that power left him and healed the one who touched him. Jesus had compassion on the unnamed lady who was desperate enough to simply touch him.
Wow I love this sketch!ReplyDelete
Its amazing to me every westerner that draws this comes up with the woman holding the hem of his garment.
Actually the woman is taking hold of the 'Tzitzith' follow this link http://sdnautilus.blogspot.com/2009/11/tzitzith-thread-of-light.html on the Tzitzith
Prophecy says the there is healing in the wings of the messiah. The woman knew about this prophecy and actually touch the tassels and got healed.
