Luke 8:27 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

A certain man - See the case of this demoniac considered at large, on the parallel places, Matthew 8:28-34 (note); Mark 5:1-20 (note).

Christ to Jairus
'When Jesus heard it, He answered, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.' --LUKE viii. 60. The calm leisureliness of conscious power shines out very brilliantly from this story of the raising of Jairus's daughter. The father had come to Jesus, in an agony of impatience, and besought Him to heal his child, who lay 'at the point of death.' Not a moment was to be lost.
