The Nineteenth Miracle of Messiah:

Mattai 9:23-26

{Classical & Mishnaic Hebrew}

וַיָּבֹא יֵשׁוּעַ אֶל־בֵּית הַשָּׂר וַיַּרְא אֶת הַמְחַלֲלִים בַּחֲלִילִים וְאֶת־הָעָם הַהוֹמֶה וַיֹּאמַר׃ סוּרוּ מִפֹּה כִּי לֹא מֵתָה הַיַּלְדָּה אַךְ יְשֵׁנָה הִיא וַיִּשְׂחֲקוּ לוֹ׃ וַיְהִי כַּאֲשֶׁר הוֹצִיאוּ אֶת־הָעָם מִשָׁם וַיָּבֹא הַבַּיְתָה וַיֹּאחֶז בְּיָדָהּ וַתָּקָם הַנַּעֲרָה׃ וַתֵּצֵא הַשְׁמוּעָה הַזֹּאת בְּכָל־הָאָרֶץ הַהִיא׃

{Modern Hebrew}

כְּשֶׁבָּא יֵשׁוּעַ אֶל בֵּית הַנִּכְבָּד וְרָאָה אֶת הַמְחַלְּלִים בַּחֲלִילִים וְאֶת הָעָם הָרוֹגֵשׁ, אָמַר: צְאוּ, כִּי הַיַּלְדָּה לֹא מֵתָה. הִיא רַק יְשֵׁנָה. אַךְ הֵם צָחֲקוּ לוֹ. לְאַחַר שֶׁהוּצְאוּ הָאֲנָשִׁים נִכְנַס, אָחַז בְּיָדָהּ וְהַנַּעֲרָה קָמָה. שֵׁמַע הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה יָצָא בְּכָל אוֹתוֹ הָאֵזוֹר. פ

כשבא ישוע אל בית הנכבד וראה את המחללים בחלילים ואת העם הרוגש, אמר: צאו, כי הילדה לא מתה. היא רק ישנה. אך הם צחקו לו. לאחר שהוצאו האנשים נכנס, אחז בידה והנערה קמה. שמע הדבר הזה יצא בכל אותו האזור. פ

Yeshua (the Messiah) came to the house of the officer (of the synagogue of Kefar Nachum; cf. 9:18-19) and saw the pipers with flutes and the groaning people, and he said, “Go away from here, for the child is not dead; she is only sleeping.” And they mocked him. When they cleared the people from there, he came into the house and took hold of her hand, and the girl arose. The news about this spread throughout that whole land.

Markos 5:35-43

עוֹדֶנּוּ מְדַבֵּר וְהִנֵּה אֲנָשִׁים בָּאִים מִבֵּית־רֹאשׁ הַכְּנֵסֶת וַיֹּאמְרוּ בִּתְּךָ מֵתָה לָמָּה תַטְרִיחַ־עוֹד אֶת הַמּוֹרֶה׃ וְכִשְׁמֹעַ יֵשׁוּעַ אֶת־הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר דִּבֵּרוּ וַיֹּאמֶר אֶל־רֹאשׁ הַכְּנֵסֶת אַל־תִּירָא רַק הַאֲמִינָה׃ וְלֹא נָתַן אִישׁ לָלֶכֶת אִתּוֹ זוּלָתִי פֶטְרוֹס וְיַעֲקֹב וְיוֹחָנָן אֲחִי יַעֲקֹב׃ וַיָּבֹא בֵּית־רֹאשׁ הַכְּנֵסֶת וַיַּרְא מְהוּמַת הַבֹּכִים וְהַמְיַלֲלִים בְּקוֹל גָּדוֹל׃ וַיָּבֹא וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵיהֶם מַה־תֶּהֱמוּ וְתִבְכּוּ הַנַּעֲרָה לֹא מֵתָה אַךְ־יְשֵׁנָה הִיא׃ וַיִּשְׂחֲקוּ לוֹ וְהוּא הוֹצִיא אֶת־כֻּלָּם וַיִּקַּח אֶת־אֲבִי הַנַּעֲרָה וְאֶת־אִמָּהּ וְהָאֲנָשִׁים אֲשֶׁר אִתּוֹ וַיָּבֹא אֶל־הַחֶדֶר אֲשֶׁר־שָׁם שֹׁכֶבֶת הַנַּעֲרָה׃ וַיֹּאחֶז בְּיַד הַנַּעֲרָה וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלֶיהָ טַלְיְתָא קוּמִי פֵּרוּשׁוֹ יַלְדָּה אֲנִי אֹמֵר לָךְ קוּמִי נָא׃ וּמִיָּד קָמָה הַיַּלְדָּה וַתִּתְהַלֵּךְ וְהִיא בַּת־שְׁתֵּים עֶשְׂרֵה שָׁנָה וַיָּשֹׁמּוּ שַׁמָּה גְדוֹלָה׃ וַיַּזְהֵר אוֹתָם מְאֹד לֵאמֹר אַל־יִוָּדַע הַדָּבָר לְאִישׁ וַיְצַו לָתֵת לָהּ לֶאֱכוֹל׃

עוֹדֶנּוּ מְדַבֵּר וְהִנֵּה בָּאוּ אֲנָשִׁים מִבֵּיתוֹ שֶׁל רֹאשׁ בֵּית הַכְּנֶסֶת וְאָמְרוּ: בִּתְּךָ מֵתָה, לָמָּה תַּטְרִיחַ עוֹד אֶת הָרַב? שָׁמַע יֵשׁוּעַ אֶת מַה שֶּׁדִּבְּרוּ וְאָמַר לְרֹאשׁ בֵּית הַכְּנֶסֶת: אַל תִּפְחַַד; רַק הַאֲמֵן. יֵשׁוּעַ לֹא הִנִּיחַ לְאִישׁ לְהִלָּווֹת אֵלָיו, חוּץ מִכֵּיפָא וְיַעֲקֹב וְיוֹחָנָן אֲחִי יַעֲקֹב. כַּאֲשֶׁר בָּאוּ אֶל בֵּיתוֹ שֶׁל רֹאשׁ בֵּית הַכְּנֶסֶת, רָאָה הֲמֻלָּה וַאֲנָשִׁים בּוֹכִים וּמְיַלְּלִים הַרְבֵּה. נִכְנַס וְאָמַר לָהֶם: מָה אַתֶּם הוֹמִים וּבוֹכִים? הַיַּלְדָּה לֹא מֵתָה. הִיא רַק יְשֵׁנָה. הֵם צָחֲקוּ לוֹ, אַךְ הוּא הוֹצִיא אֶת כֻּלָּם, לָקַח אֶת אֲבִי הַיַּלְדָּה וְאֶת אִמָּהּ, עִם הָאֲנָשִׁים אֲשֶׁר אִתּוֹ, וְנִכְנַס לַמָּקוֹם שֶׁשָּׁכְבָה בּוֹ הַיַּלְדָּה. הוּא אָחַז בְּיָדָהּ שֶׁל הַיַּלְדָּה וְאָמַר אֵלֶיהָ: טַלְיְתָא, קוּמִי! שֶׁתַּרְגּוּמוֹ, נַעֲרָה, קוּמִי – אֲנִי אוֹמֵר לָךְ. מִיָּד קָמָה הַנַּעֲרָה וְהִתְהַלְּכָה; וְהִיא בַּת שְׁתֵּים־עֶשְׂרֵה שָׁנָה. הֵם נִתְמַלְּאוּ תִּמָּהוֹן גָּדוֹל. אָז צִוָּה עֲלֵיהֶם בְּתֹקֶף שֶׁלֹּא יִוָּדַע הַדָּבָר לְאִישׁ וְאָמַר לָתֵת לָהּ לֶאֱכֹל. פ

עודנו מדבר והנה באו אנשים מביתו של ראש בית הכנסת ואמרו: בתך מתה, למה תטריח עוד את הרב? שמע ישוע את מה שדברו ואמר לראש בית הכנסת: אל תפחד; רק האמן. ישוע לא הניח לאיש להלוות אליו, חוץ מכיפא ויעקב ויוחנן אחי יעקב. כאשר באו אל ביתו של ראש בית הכנסת, ראה המלה ואנשים בוכים ומיללים הרבה. נכנס ואמר להם: מה אתם הומים ובוכים? הילדה לא מתה. היא רק ישנה. הם צחקו לו, אך הוא הוציא את כלם, לקח את אבי הילדה ואת אמה, עם האנשים אשר אתו, ונכנס למקום ששכבה בו הילדה. הוא אחז בידה של הילדה ואמר אליה: טליתא, קומי! שתרגומו, נערה, קומי – אני אומר לך. מיד קמה הנערה והתהלכה; והיא בת שתים-עשרה שנה. הם נתמלאו תמהון גדול. אז צוה עליהם בתקף שלא יודע הדבר לאיש ואמר לתת לה לאכל. פ

While he was still speaking, men came from the home of the head of the synagogue and said, “Your daughter is dead; why trouble the Rabbi further?” But when Yeshua heard the word that they said, he said to the synagogue leader, “Do not be afraid; just believe.” He did not allow anyone to go with him except Petros, Ya’akov, and Yochanan the brother of Ya’akov. He came to the house of the synagogue leader and saw the commotion of those loudly weeping and wailing. He came and said to them, “Why are you moaning and crying? The young woman (or child) is not dead; she is only sleeping.” They laughed at (mocked) him, but he sent them all out, and he took the father of the young woman and her mother and the men who were with him, and he came to the room where the young woman was lying. He grasped the hand of the young woman and said to her, “Talyeta kumi,” which is interpreted, I tell you, “Girl get up!” Immediately, the girl got up and walked. She was twelve years old, and they were greatly astonished. But he warned them strictly, saying, “Do not make the matter known to anyone!” and he commanded them to give her something to eat.

Lukas 8:49-56

עוֹדֶנּוּ מְדַבֵּר וְאִישׁ בָּא מִבֵּית רֹאשׁ הַכְּנֵסֶת וַיֹּאמַר מֵתָה בִתְּךָ אַל־תַּטְרִיחַ אֶת־הַמּוֹרֶה׃ וַיִּשְׁמַע יֵשׁוּעַ וַיַּעַן וַיֹּאמֶר לוֹ אַל־תִּירָא רַק־הַאֲמֵן וְהִיא תִוָּשֵׁעַ׃ וַיָּבֹא הַבַּיְתָה וְלֹא־הִנִּיחַ לְאִישׁ לָבוֹא אִתּוֹ בִּלְתִּי לְפֶטְרוֹס וּלְיַעֲקֹב וּלְיוֹחָנָן וְלַאֲבִי הַיַּלְדָּה וּלְאִמָּהּ׃ וְכֻלָּם בֹּכִים וְסֹפְדִים לָהּ וַיֹּאמֶר אַל־תִּבְכּוּ כִּי לֹא מֵתָה אַךְ־יְשֵׁנָה הִיא׃ וַיִּשְׂחֲקוּ עָלָיו בַּאֲשֶׁר יָדְעוּ כִּי־מֵתָה׃ וְהוּא אָחַז בְּיָדָהּ וַיִּקְרָא וַיֹּאמַר הַיַּלְדָּה קוּמִי׃ וַתָּשָׁב רוּחָהּ וַתָּקָם פִּתְאֹם וַיְצַו לָתֶת־לָהּ לֶאֱכוֹל׃ וַיִּתְמְהוּ אָבִיהָ וְאִמָּהּ וַיְצַו עֲלֵיהֶם לְבִלְתִּי הַגִּיד לְאִישׁ אֵת אֲשֶׁר נַעֲשָׂה׃

בְּשָׁעָה שֶׁדִּבֵּר בָּא אִישׁ מִבֵּיתוֹ שֶׁל רֹאשׁ בֵּית הַכְּנֶסֶת וְאָמַר: בִּתְּךָ מֵתָה, אַל תַּטְרִיחַ עוֹד אֶת הַמּוֹרֶה. אַךְ יֵשׁוּעַ בְּשָׁמְעוֹ זֹאת אָמַר: אַל תִּירָא, רַק הַאֲמֵן וְהִיא תֵּרָפֵא. כַּאֲשֶׁר בָּא אֶל הַבַּיִת לֹא הִנִּיחַ לְאִישׁ לְהִכָּנֵּס אִתּוֹ, חוּץ מִכֵּיפָא, יוֹחָנָן, יַעֲקֹב, אֲבִי הַיַּלְדָּה וְאִמָּהּ. הַכֹּל בָּכוּ וְקוֹנְנוּ עָלֶיהָ, אַךְ הוּא אָמַר: אַל תִּבְכּוּ, הִיא לֹא מֵתָה. הִיא רַק יְשֵׁנָה. הֵם צָחֲקוּ לוֹ, כִּי יָדְעוּ שֶׁהִיא מֵתָה. אוּלָם הוּא אָחַז בְּיָדָהּ וְקָרָא: יַלְדָּה, קוּמִי! אָז שָׁבָה רוּחָהּ וְהִיא קָמָה מִיָּד. צִוָּה יֵשׁוּעַ: תְּנוּ לָהּ לֶאֱכֹל! הוֹרֶיהָ הִשְׁתּוֹמְמוּ, אַךְ הוּא צִוָּה עֲלֵיהֶם שֶׁלֹּא יַגִּידוּ לְאִישׁ אֶת אֲשֶׁר נַעֲשָׂה. פ

בשעה שדבר בא איש מביתו של ראש בית הכנסת ואמר: בתך מתה, אל תטריח עוד את המורה. אך ישוע בשמעו זאת אמר: אל תירא, רק האמן והיא תרפא. כאשר בא אל הבית לא הניח לאיש להכנס אתו, חוץ מכיפא, יוחנן, יעקב, אבי הילדה ואמה. הכל בכו וקוננו עליה, אך הוא אמר: אל תבכו, היא לא מתה. היא רק ישנה. הם צחקו לו, כי ידעו שהיא מתה. אולם הוא אחז בידה וקרא: ילדה, קומי! אז שבה רוחה והיא קמה מיד. צוה ישוע: תנו לה לאכל! הוריה השתוממו, אך הוא צוה עליהם שלא יגידו לאיש את אשר נעשה. פ

While he (the Messiah) was speaking, a man came from the synagogue leader’s house (cf. 8:40-42). He said (to Ya’ir, the leader of the synagogue), “Your daughter has died. Do not bother the Rabbi.” Yeshua (meaning, the Salvation of G-d) heard this, and he answered and said to him, “Do not fear. Only believe and she will be saved.” He came to the house, but he did not permit anyone to come with him except for Petros, Ya’akov, Yochanan, and the father and mother of the girl. All of them were weeping and mourning her, but he said, “Do not weep; for she is not dead but sleeping.” They laughed at him, because they knew that she had died. He took her hand and called out and said, “Girl, I say to you, get up!” Her spirit returned, and she got up suddenly. He commanded them to give her something to eat. Her father and mother were amazed. He commanded them not to tell anyone what had happened.

Opening-up questions and clues:

The following opening-up questions and clues are provided as an introduction to this study on the 19th Miracle of Messiah:

1.  Look at the symbolism of the above miracle narrative: At what location does the miracle occur?

2.  Why was it of critical importance that the woman with the bleeding disorder be healed before Jarius’ daughter? What is the connection between Jarius and the woman who was healed of the bleeding disorder?

3.  What is the relational connection, therefore, of the faith of the healed woman with the faith of Jarius for his daughter to be raised from the dead?

4.  Why did the Messiah describe the girl who had died as, “she was sleeping?”

5.  What is the spiritual meaning of the Messiah’s hand touching the hand of the dead girl?

6.  Why did the Messiah tell the parents not to tell anyone that they were eye-witnesses of the Messiah raising their daughter from the dead?

7.  What is the spiritual significance of the number twelve in the Hebrew Scriptures?

8.  In the previous miracle the woman suffered from her blood disorder for 12 years and in this miracle the daughter of Jarius died and was raised back to life at 12 years of age. What common spiritual meaning do these two daughters of Israel share?

9.  In accord with the Messiah’s wishes, what did the ruler of the synagogue instruct his servants to do as soon as the Messiah brought his daughter back to life?

10.  Who are the servants of the ruler of the synagogue of Kefar Nachum a symbol of?

The 18th and 19th Miracles share a common spiritual meaning:

The Nineteenth Miracle of the Messiah is the eighth miracle of eleven recorded miracle events (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11) that occur in the Messiah’s home town of Kefar Nachum (the Village of [G-d’s] Compassion, Comfort, and Consolation). This miracle of “Raising Jarius’ (יָאִיר-Ya’ir’s) daughter” shares a common spiritual meaning with the Messiah’s last miracle where he healed a woman who had been suffering from a “bleeding disorder.” Therefore, we must begin this study by asking the question:

Why was it of critical importance that the woman with the bleeding disorder be healed before Ya’ir’s daughter was raised from the dead?

The demonstration of the spiritual wisdom, faith and miraculous healing of the woman with the bleeding order was a necessary witness to Ya’ir, the ruler of the synagogue at Kefar Nachum, so that his faith might be increased sufficient for him to believe that the Messiah could (shortly) thereafter raise up his daughter up from death.

The fact of the matter is that the healing of the first daughter of Israel (the woman with the bleeding disorder)—is a prophetic illustration of the beginning of the process of the “salvation” (restoration) of the entire nation and people of Israel. This is a prophecy that faith must be stirred up in a remnant of the Jewish people before real healing and spiritual growth, true enlightenment (wholeness, completeness, and wellness) can come to all of the Jewish congregation (i.e. synagogues,  and other assemblies). The challenge is that right now:

Most Jews today don’t even know whether G-d really exists or he is just a human invention.

Today, most Jews believe that organized religion is a never-ending stream of repetitive, superstitious practices that possess no true power to bring (real) happiness to anyone. In other words: for most Jews our faith in G-d has grown weak and in many cases has even “died.” Most Jews infrequently attend synagogue and even then we only do so because we want to maintain our cultural identity. Not because we believe in G-d. So, we must ask the question:

If most Jews today are agnostics what is going to stir up true faith among the people of Israel?

A remnant of Jews in Israel have already begun to witness real miracles in the Messiah’s name and have been supernaturally enlightened to the truth that Yehoshua (Yeshua) ben Yosef ben David is our (Israel’s) Messiah. Since the establishment of Israel in 1948 the old rigid rationalizations of the orthodox rabbinic faith have been rapidly dying out. This means the non-practicing Jews, who are the majority of Jews living in the world today and who are agnostics, are the ones who will come to true faith in the Messiah first. Ultra Orthodox Judaism and its man-made laws is rapidly dying. Messianic Judaism – with its strong belief in the signs, wonders and miracles of G-d – is growing. Therefore, we believe:

Real faith will be stirred up among our people when the signs, wonders, and miracles of the Holy Spirit are seen once again in Israel.

We believe in the Life of the Spirit. We believe that the letter of the law kills true spirituality but the freedom of faith in the Spirit of Grace (Ruach Ha-Chesed) brings (supernatural) life. There is one written Torah (the Scriptures) and one (supernatural) Oral Torah—The Spirit of Truth. It is the Spirit of the Holy One who reveals to us all truth. For it is written:

אֲבָל הוּא, אֲשֶׁר הוּא רוּחַ הָאֱמֶת, כְּשֶׁיָּבוֹא יַדְרִיךְ אֶתְכֶם אֶל כָּל הָאֱמֶת, כִּי לֹא יְדַבֵּר מֵעַצְמוֹ, אֶלָּא אֶת אֲשֶׁר הוּא שׁוֹמֵעַ יְדַבֵּר וְאֶת הַבָּאוֹת יוֹדִיעַ לָכֶם.פ

But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth (כָּל הָאֱמֶת); for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. (Yochanan 16:13)

The Spirit of Truth is the only Oral Law that can lead us and guide us into all truth:

No man shall teach us. The Spirit of Truth: He is the One who shall lead and guide us into all truth.

The reception of the true Oral Torah, more precious than the written Torah, must be received first. The Indwelling Presence of the Spirit of the Holy One must be received in  every Jewish heart before true healing and wellness can come to the life of our synagogues. Three basic truths to keep in mind are:

Truth #1.  This “walk” in the Spirit is the right and obligation of every Jew.

Truth #2.  This walk (lit. halakha) does not require a rabbinical library constructed out of tens of thousands of men’s (naturalistic) rationalizations.

Truth #3.  This walk only requires faith in the Messiah brought about by a basic knowledge of the prophets and the acceptance of the supernatural gift of our Father in heaven: the gift of the Indwelling Presence of the Spirit of Holiness living within us.

A growing majority of Jews today reject the hyper-legalism of Orthodox Judaism.

We believe that the Bramble Bush King – Ultra Orthodox Judaism – is dying. It is dying because it needs to die. It is the legalistic heart of stone that our ancient prophets said would one day be replaced with G-d’s “heart of flesh.” We believe that for our Jewish faith to be completely revived (saved, healed) faith in our  Messiah must come first. For this to occur we expect to once again see the miraculous works of the Spirit of the Holy One being manifested in Israel.

Today we need proof of the existence and (supernatural) goodness of G-d that our close-minded rabbis just don’t possess.

We followers of the Messiah are not overtly religious in the traditional, legalistic, rabbinc sense. We are not kosher to the rabbis. We do not live under the bondage of the false oral law of the Prushim rabbinate and their modern ultra-orthodox successors. We have been branded by these rabbis as as being the ceremonially ‘unclean’ ones because of our unshakable faith in the teachings of Rabbeinu Yeshua. For nearly two millennia now we Jewish followers of Yeshua (lit. the Salvation of G-d) have historically been the outcasts of Israel. Yet we are beloved of Adonai (our Father and our G-d). This is so because we are Indwelt with the gift of His Living Torah. Small in number, we are the ones in the assembly of Israel who speak the truth of HaShem. For it is written:

אַחַי, רְאוּ מִי אַתֶּם שֶׁנִּקְרֵאתֶם: לֹא רַבִּים מִכֶּם חֲכָמִים מִבְּחִינַת הָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה, לֹא רַבִּים חֲזָקִים וְלֹא רַבִּים רָמֵי יַחַשׂ. אֲבָל אֱלֹהִים בָּחַר בַּכְּסִילִים אֲשֶׁר בָּעוֹלָם כְּדֵי לְבַיֵּשׁ אֶת הַחֲכָמִים, וּבַחַלָּשִׁים אֲשֶׁר בָּעוֹלָם כְּדֵי לְבַיֵּשׁ אֶת הַחֲזָקִים; בַּנְּחוּתִים אֲשֶׁר בָּעוֹלָם וּבַנֶּחְשָׁבִים לִפְחוּתֵי עֵרֶךְ בָּחַר אֱלֹהִים, בַּדְּבָרִים שֶׁהֵם כְּאֶפֶס, כְּדֵי לְהַשְׁפִּיל עַד לְאֶפֶס אֶת הַדְּבָרִים הַקַּיָּמִים, לְמַעַן לֹא יִתְהַלֵּל אִישׁ לִפְנֵי הָאֱלֹהִים. אֲבָל מִמֶּנּוּ קַיָּמִים אַתֶּם בַּמָּשִׁיחַ יֵשׁוּעַ אֲשֶׁר הָיָה לָנוּ לְחָכְמָה מֵאֵת אֱלֹהִים, לִצְדָקָה, לִקְדֻשָּׁה וְלִפְדוּת, כְּדֵי שֶׁהַמִּתְהַלֵּל יִתְהַלֵּל בַּיהוה, כְּמוֹ שֶׁגַּם כָּתוּב.פ

For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh (naturalistic human reasoning), not many mighty, not many noble; but G-d (HaShem) has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and G-d has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised G-d has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no person may boast before G-d. But by His doing you are in the Messiah Yeshua, who became to us wisdom from G-d, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, “LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN HASHEM!”

Many who identify themselves as being followers of Yeshua today were at the first mostly non-practicing (agnostic and atheist)  Jews. How did we go from being agnostics and atheists to believing in the Messiah Yeshua? Just like the precious woman outcast in the supernatural healing narrative of the previous chapter, we found the Messiah in the Scriptures (the Written Law)! We discovered the Messiah first in the Jewish Scriptures (the Tanakh) and yes, second in the past (and now present) miracles that we have discovered the Messiah has performed through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Messiah is not dead. He is alive! Soon he will return to Israel to restore all things!

The true resurrected Daughter of the Synagogue of Kefar Nachum:

Therefore we Jewish followers of Yeshua, we are the ones who have come to faith in the Messiah Yeshua first. Yet, there is still a bright future (hope) for our ultra-orthodox brothers and sisters. First, we Jews who are the non-religious outcasts must come to faith first. Then second, the Messiah will come to the Daughter of the Synagogue—the one who has been sick and dying and is now dead (our ultra-orthodox brethren)—and he (our Messiah) will take ‘their hand’ firmly into the grasp of ‘his hand’ and say:

“I say to you, rise up!”

Then immediately, the Daughter of the Synagogue (our ultra-orthodox brethren) will get up and begin walking in the halakha of the (Indwelling Presence) of the Spirit of Adonai (our Father and our G-d). Then will all the household of “him who is the Enlightener” (Ya’ir) be greatly astonished. Then will the Spirit of the Holy One say:

“Now you can make this matter known to everyone!”

And then will He – the Living Spirit of the Holy One – instruct the servants of those whom He has enlightened to nourish all the people of Israel and of all of the nations, peoples and families of the world!

Just as the unclean one came to life, the clean one died:

While the Messiah was saying shalom and goodbye to the woman he had just healed in Kefar Nachum of a bleeding disorder a group of men (relatives and friends) came to inform Jarius, the Ruler of the Synagogue, that his only daughter had just died. The messengers assumed that the daughter’s death ended any need for Rabbi Yeshua to continue on to Jarius’ home. So the men advised Jarius not to “trouble” the Rabbi by asking him to proceed to the house of the ruler of the synagogue; which shortly before was a house of hope and now was a house of death.

“Overcome your fear. Keep believing!”

However, when Rabbi Yeshua overheard that the girl (the daughter of the ruler of the synagogue) had died he ignored the bad news and said to Jarius: “Overcome your fear. Keep believing!” Jarius had already exercised enough faith to ask the Messiah for His help. His faith had increased when he witnessed the miracle of the woman healed of the blood disorder. Now he needed only to keep believing. So the ruler of the synagogue kept on believing and therefore it is written:

In full faith the Ruler of the Synagogue of Kefar Nachum escorted Rabbi Yeshua to his home.

Seven persons witnessed the resurrection of Jarius’ daughter:

Including Jarius, the Messiah allowed only three of his disciples to accompany him to the house of Jarius. The three disciples served as legal witnesses of the raising of the daughter of the Ruler of the Synagogue. This and two other physical resurrections performed by the Messiah were a prophetic witness to the ultimate defining miracle which was the resurrection of the Messiah on the third day after his atoning death on the accursed tree. At the house of Jarius the ritual of Jewish mourning had already begun. The uproar (commotion) included the activities of the hired mourners: who were weeping and wailing. (cf. Jeremiah 9:17; Amos 5:16)

Messiah entered the house and rebuked the mourners:

The Messiah entered the house and rebuked the mourners. He did this to change the narrative. He openly rebuked the mourners to teach his people (Israel) that Adonai Avinu is not the G-d of the dead. He is the G-d of the living.

Those of Israel who believe in the resurrection power of the Adonai Elohei Yisrael will never die!

We shall live forever. This is so because the eternal essence of our conscious being—our immortal soul—is preserved and protected by Adonai (our Father), who is the G-d of Israel. As wonderful as our bodies are and the physical universe is they exist together as a temporary feature of our eternal existence. They will die. But we shall live on forever; even beyond the life of this universe. This physical universe is no more than a means for Adonai Avinu to grow, develop and give birth to His consciousness in us—His children. The physical universe will die. We will live forever.

The Good News is both daughters of Israel were raised back to life!

After the Messiah put out the professional Jewish mourners he took the girl’s parents and the three disciples with Him into her room. As stated before this means there were seven witnesses to the resurrection of Jarius’ daughter (messianic Judaism):

Witness #1:  The Messiah, Rabbeinu Yeshua (the Salvation of Adonai).
Witness #2:  The Father, the Ruler of the Synagogue, Ya’ir (יָאִיר, root אוֹר-the Enlightener).
Witness #3:  The Mother, the wife of Ya’ir (ירושלים של מעלה -the heavenly Yerushalayim above; who is the mother of us all).
Witness #4:  Talmid #1, (Cephas, Rock), Shaul Ben Yochanan (Incorruptible One: who Hears, Understands and Obeys the Grace of Adonai).
Witness #5:  Talmid #2, Ya’akov ([Adonai] Preserves and Protects the Supplanter who replaces the evil world system with the Rule of G-d).
Witness #6:  Talmid #3, Yochanan Ben Zebedee (Endowment [Indwelling] of the Grace of Adonai) the brother of Ya’akov.
Witness #7:  The Daughter (Yehudim) of the Father (Adonai), Ruler of the Synagogue (Assembly of Yisra’el), who was dead and now is alive!

Then the Messiah took the dead girl’s hand and spoke the words, “Talyeta kumi,” which is interpreted, “Girl, I say to you, get up!” The words “I say to you” was to emphasize Yeshua’s authority over death. At His command immediately the girl got up and began walking around. She was 12 years old and her parents and the three disciples who witnessed her miracle were greatly astonished (out of their minds in great amazement). However, the Messiah warned them strictly, saying (for an unknown period of time):

“Do not make the matter known to anyone!”

Prophetically speaking: the Good News here is that both daughters—in this miracle and the last miracle—were raised from sickness and death to new life!

What is the prophetic meaning of Messiah’s teaching in these two miracles?

Point #1.  The first daughter of Israel with the blood disorder was raised to new life as one who once lived as an unclean person, excluded from the worship assembly of Israel; now she is healed; and after 12 years of exclusion from the synagogues of Israel she is pronounced ritually clean; once again she can be included in the assembly of Israel; she is free now to worship G-d among her own people.

Point #2.  As to the second daughter of Israel: she is the daughter of the ruler of the synagogue. She is the daughter who has yet to be raised back to life. Unlike the first daughter of Israel this little one has never known what it is like to be excluded from the worship congregation of Israel. Yet now she suffers an illness that is unto death. So, before she dies her father, the ruler of the synagogue, must go and find the Messiah that he might quickly bring him to his home to restore his daughter to health. Yet in the time that it has taken to find the Messiah his daughter has already died. Yet, after seeing Yeshua heal the woman with the blood disorder he believes in the Messiah. So he takes Rabbi Yeshua now to his home believing that by the power of the wings of heaven that the Messiah will raise up his daughter from the dead. Therefore, it must be stated:

Point #3.  Only after the ruler of the synagogue believed that the woman who the Messiah called “My Daughter” was completely healed and fully restored to freely worship among her own people in the congregation of Israel did the Messiah go to his home to raise up the ruler’s daughter from death to new life.

What is the  meaning in this prophetic narrative of the two miracles?

Prophecy #1.  The first daughter with the blood disorder are those Jews who follow the Messiah. We are the ones who the heavenly Father publicly acknowledges as being, “My Daughter.” Remember this: the words that Yeshua speaks are not his own. They are the words of the Father (HaAv). Messiah is His Voice (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). He is the “anointed one” who always speaks and does the will of the Father (1, 2, 3). The followers of the Messiah are the ones who are addressed by G-d as being, “My Daughter.” The Jewish followers of Yeshua are the ones who have suffered most under the rule of the rabbis (physicians, spiritual doctors) for *12 years. We Jewish followers of Rabbi Yeshua (our Messiah) have been the social outcasts, the unclean ones, who have been (until recently) unable to participate in the worship of the G-d of Israel; among our own people. Even now we are the only Jews who are excluded from immigration (aliyah) to Israel.

* The number twelve is a symbol of the “governance” of the nation and people of Israel.

Prophecy #2.  In contrast to those Jews who follow Yeshua, the daughter of the ruler of the synagogue, she has not suffered for *12 years as a social outcast and as one unable to participate in the corporate worship of the congregation of Israel. But now she suffers from the sickness unto death. It is now necessary for her father, the ruler of the synagogue (our rabbinic rulers) to seek out the Messiah, find him, and by faith bring the power of heaven back to his home to raise up his daughter (the Jewish worship assemblies) from death—to new life.

*The Tannaim and five other eras of rabbinc governance (rule) have thus far rejected the Messiah Yeshua and his Jewish followers. These six eras of rabbinic rulers are identified as follows: Tannaim (תנאים), Amoraim (אמוראים), Savoraim (סבוראים), Geonim (גאונים), Rishonim (ראשונים), Acharonim (אחרונים). This nearly two millennia rejection of the Messiah and his Jewish followers is now coming to an end.

Prophecy #3.  The (near) future revival of the second daughter of Israel from death to life will happen. Just as soon as our modern *rulers of the synagogues (rabbis) understand why and how the first daughter of Israel has reached out in faith, touched the “wings of heaven,” and been saved. Today’s rabbis must go and do the same. Then you must take the teaching of the Messiah Yeshua and the Presence of the Holy One to your homes that all of the daughters of Israel (your synagogues, worship assemblies) may be raised up into His new life.

*This is the end time. We are now in the era of Acharonim (אחרונים-last ones). We are presently in the rabbinic era of the “last,” “ latter,” “final,” and “ulimate” time. Our Messiah is returning to Israel from heaven soon. Therefore, in summary:

Each of the two daughters of Israel must be healed in the manner and order G-d has appointed.

Summary of the prophecy:  The first daughter of Israel whose father’s name is withheld (*hidden) has already been saved. This first daughter represents all those Jews who have believed in and followed the Messiah Yeshua from the first century (CE) to the present day. Now it is the rulers of all the congregation of Israel who must exercise true faith in the Messiah and become G-d’s light (יָאִיר-Ya’ir) in both their homes (their hearts) and in their synagogues (assemblies). Therefore,  when the rulers (rabbis) take the light of the Messiah of G-d into their hearts and into the synagogues of Israel (the daughters of the rulers) then the Spirit of the Holy One will raise up (**save) all Israel; and then will the Messiah with all Israel (truly) be G-d’s light to all of the nations, peoples, and families of the world!

*HaShem.

**Save all Israel! This phrase refers to the (near future) time of the restoration of Israel; also called in the Scriptures the “restitution of all things.”
