Luke 8:40-48 — “A woman having an issue of blood twelve years…came behind [Jesus], and touched the border of his garment.” This story at the end of Luke chapter 8 is quite familiar, but do we know what life was really like for this sick woman? Do we understand why she tried to secretly touch Jesus’ clothes? Do we fully appreciate what Jesus did for her?
In this sermon, we start in the Old Testament in order to set the context. We can’t understand this woman’s suffering if we don’t know some of the regulations that God gave His people. We then go to the text in Luke and follow the story through and as we do, we are presented with a beautiful truth about our Lord Jesus Christ.
