The Duaghter of Jairus and the Woman with the Flow of Blood

I Century
The affliction of the woman with the flow of blood lasted the same time that the daughter of Jairus had been alive, and their healings were approximately simultaneous. To many patristic writers, they symbolise the Gentiles (who wore out their living on useless medecines) and the Jews (children of distinguished parents), respectively.

Under construction --- far from complete! Read with caution.
