People's Bible Notes for Matthew 9:18


Mt 9:18,19 There came a certain ruler. One of the rulers of the synagogue (probably of the synagogue of Capernaum). One of the elders and presiding officers, who convened the assembly, preserved order, invited readers and speakers. His name was Jairus (Mr 5:22 Lu 8:41). Matthew, Mark, and Luke all give this account. From them we learn that the maiden was twelve years old, was dying when the ruler started, was dead when he spoke to Jesus. Compare Mt 9:18-26 Mr 5:22-43 Lu 8:41-56.
