The Daughter of Jairus — Tissot


This artwork by Tissot shows Jesus performing a miracle by bringing the 12-year-old daughter of Jairus to life. Jairus and his wife watch as Christ raises her from the bed, while the apostles Peer, James and John look on from the rear right of the image.

"And taking the damsel by the hand, he saith to her: Talitha cumi, which is, being interpreted: Damsel (I say to thee) arise. And immediately the damsel rose up, and walked: and she was twelve years old: and they were astonished with a great astonishment." Mark 5:41-42
