A Sick Woman and a Dead Girl

Luke 8:40-56

Purity laws were a big deal in first-century Jewish society. And yet, Jesus breaks two of them (two of the BIG ones) here. Something strange happens, though. Rather than Jesus becoming impure, the people he touches in this text are healed and restored. So it is with us. Jesus touches us, and we find ourselves made new, made whole, made alive again. Such is the power of the Gospel.
