Jesus went with Jairus (Mk 5:24-5:24)


Jesus went with Jairus.

A large crowd

Followed him.

They pressed in

On him.”


καὶ ἀπῆλθεν μετ’ αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἠκολούθει αὐτῷ ὄχλος πολύς, καὶ συνέθλιβον αὐτόν.


Matthew, chapter 9:19, and Luke, chapter 8:42, are similar in showing that Jesus responded immediately, without saying anything.  Mark said that Jesus simply got up and went with Jairus (καὶ ἀπῆλθεν μετ’ αὐτοῦ).  However, a large crowd also followed them (καὶ ἠκολούθει αὐτῷ ὄχλος πολύς).  This crowd pressed against him (καὶ συνέθλιβον αὐτόν).
