More On The Sick Woman and The Dead Girl

Q.  My jaw just dropped while reading your understanding of Jairus’ daughter and the sick woman.  I never noticed the symbolism! I have a question about it.  I would like your thoughts on the number 12 that is so prominent here.  Woman with an issue of blood 12 yrs – 12 year old daughter. I read somewhere that 12 is the number for government. Is the number 12 in this case representative of the 12 tribes (Israel) and the 12 apostles (church)?

Please Explain The Difference

Q.  Re: Must God Choose Us?  Could you explain these two verses.  Isaiah 55:6 says,  “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near”  and John 6:44 says, ” No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.” They seem to contradict each other.

An Intellectual Seeker?

Q.  I co-lead a Men’s Group in our Church. We have a very intelligent retired Phycology Professional in our group. He states he does not believe in sin, hell, heaven nor the Deity of Jesus. He sees the Bible as just another book of Truth, and picks and chooses from it to suit his needs to learn – as he would from any other book.  This man is 84, and he is willing to gamble his eternity on his own philosophical views and beliefs.  I do not know what to say to such an intellectual ‘seeker’. Right now, I just pray for him. He is a very kind and nice man; but just so lost in his own “worldly intellect” ! What should I do?

Saved Unbelievers?

Q.  I have been married for 7 1/2 years and love my husband dearly. I am a believer but He is not. I have presented him with the facts and showed him scriptures in the bible to back it up. He just believes that Jesus was a good man that started one of many religions that are practiced today. He believes that when we as Christians tell someone that Jesus is the only way to salvation, that it is discriminatory against other beliefs. We have had many heated discussions in reference to this. It breaks my heart to know that his soul is at stake and I pray that the Lord will open his eyes one day.

A Question Of Faith

Q.   Re: The Sick Woman And The Dead Girl.  In the days of Christ the woman was drawn to touch His garment knowing she would be healed. My question is what was it that some saw in the physical man called Christ that others did not? They didn’t have the written Word for years and years to give testimony to His existence and life. They didn’t have the eye witness that saw Him die and rise from the dead or ascend to heaven, yet they believed in Him as a mortal. I think maybe they had far more faith than we do.
