Treasury of Scripture

When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.

touched.

Mark 6:56
And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

2 Kings 13:21
And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood up on his feet.

Matthew 14:36
And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.









Verses 27, 28. - This woman, having heard of Jesus - literally (τὰ περί τοῦ Ἰησοῦ), the things concerning Jesus - came in the crowd behind, and touched his garment. St. Matthew and St Luke say "the border (τοῦ κρασπέδου) of his garment." St. Matthew tells us that "she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole." From this it appears that, though she had faith, it was an imperfect faith. She seems to have imagined that a certain magical influence was within Christ and around him. And the touching of the border of his garment (the blue fringe which the Jews were required to wear, to remind them that they were God's people) was supposed by her to convey a special virtue. Yet her faith, though imperfect, was true in its essence, and therefore was not disappointed.
