him. She touched the fringe of his robe, for she thought, “If I can just touch
his robe, I will be healed.”
Jesus turned around, and when he saw her he said, “Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well.” And the woman was healed at
that moment.
When Jesus arrived at the official’s home, he saw the noisy crowd and
heard the funeral music. “Get out!” he told them. “The girl isn’t dead;
she’s only asleep.” But the crowd laughed at him. After the crowd was put
outside, however, Jesus went in and took the girl by the hand, and she
stood up! The report of this miracle swept through the entire countryside.
After Jesus left the girl’s home, two blind men followed along behind him,
shouting, “Son of David, have mercy on us!”
They went right into the house where he was staying, and Jesus asked

happen.” Then their eyes were opened, and they could see! Jesus sternly
warned them, “Don’t tell anyone about this.” But instead, they went out
and spread his fame all over the region.
When they left, a demon-possessed man who couldn’t speak was brought

The crowds were amazed. “Nothing like this has ever happened in Israel!”
they exclaimed.
But the Pharisees said, “He can cast out demons because he is empowered by the prince of demons.”
Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in
the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And
he healed every kind of disease and illness. When he saw the crowds, he
had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like
sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great,
but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest;
ask him to send more workers into his fields.”
Jesus called his twelve disciples together and gave them authority to cast
out evil spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness. Here are the
names of the twelve apostles:
