Jairus’ Daughter And The Woman with The Issue Of Blood. Spiritual meaning?

Is there a spiritual meaning between the two? Wasn’t the woman bleeding for 12 years and the girl was 12 years old?


The spiritual meaning is that faith in Jesus can heal and save. Jairus and the woman both approached Jesus with the faith that he can heal. Jesus tells Jairus that if he has faith his daughter will be saved, and he tells the woman that her faith has saved her.

Since both miracles involved touching Jesus a further spiritual meaning could be that when we touch Jesus when we partake the Eucharist we are healed and saved.

The 12 years in both miracles might be significant in relation to the twelve tribes of Israel or the 12 Apostles.
