Key Verse: 5:36
What are some common fears people have?

Read verses 37-40. What did Jesus find going on at Jairus’ house? How did he overcome the atmosphere of fear and create the atmosphere of faith? (40) What did Jesus mean when he said, “The child is not dead but asleep”? How did people react when Jesus expressed confidence that the dead girl would be all right?
Read verses 41-43. Who witnessed the girl being raised from the dead by Jesus? (40-42) What were Jesus’ final instructions? Why do you think Jesus urged people not to spread the news of the girl’s healing?
