Abstract

The story of the hemorrhaging woman has been taught to many as a simple healing story that portrays Jesus’ ability to heal anyone with faith. While this idea is not being challenged directly, the text holds much more than that concept. The text itself involves a view into God’s justice and God’s view on the Jewish traditions of the first century. The abusive social structure in Judaism is challenged in the work of Jesus and his interaction with a hemorrhaging woman from Mark 5:25-34 which display God’s justice and care for the oppressed and outcast.
