“And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.”
King James Version (KJV)
Lu 7:14 Touched the bier. As a signal to stop. There was an authority in not only the words but the acts of the Lord which compelled obedience. Arise. This is the first time he spoke these words to the dead. It must have been to his disciples and the multitude a moment of suspense and wonder.
