There is so much to the two stories captured in Luke 8: 40-56. (I just listened to a sermon on this passage at church this past week, and was completely absorbed in the message.) We learn about a woman being healed, and a girl being raised from the dead in this very short, concise part of scripture.
But, these stories didn't speak to me because of the healing or the resurrection...they spoke to me because of what they reveal about the nature of God; that He places a priority on the DIGNITY of each individual, and that He takes into consideration the PLACE that people hold in society.
