A DAUGHTER BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE.
Mark 5:22-24, 35-43.
This is the third in the Bible home for incurables miracles. You remember three times the Lord
Jesus did something in this chapter which was considered absolutely impossible to do. He cured
a man who was demon possessed. He cured a woman who had been diseased with an incurable disease
for 12 years. Now, He brings back to life a little girl who has died. I really believe that the
most remarkable of all three of these is the one we are considering this morning. In this part-

who was 12 years of age and she had died. She was right on the threshold of womanhood. She was
right at the very beginning of the very finest and the most wonderful years in all of her life.

me. It was a grim reminder to me and all of us that death is no respecter of persons and that
death has no age limit. When you go to the cemetery you will discover that there are graves all
sizes. The young may die, the old must. So, here is the account of a little girl 12 years of
age and she died. We are getting ahead of our story, so, let's just back up now and take up
the 22nd verse. I want to just lay before you the details of this account. Number one I want
to call your attention to -
