We continue our series "Encounters" with the story of a woman dealing with an issue of blood for 12 years. Her only hope is to touch Jesus and if she can touch His garment would be enough to heal her. However, to separate the encounter from the context would be missing the intention of story. It is while Jesus is on his way to heal Jairus' daughter who was 12 years old that the encounter takes place. Both stories are intrinsically connected as they both reveal our need for God whether you have been struggling with a long time struggle or you have followed the precepts of the law. How does Jesus heal both and what is revealed though this is powerful.
