The Woman with an Issue of Blood – Tissot


Collections: Jesus Christ

Category: Miracles-Life

One of the many miracles of Jesus, this image by J. Tissot shows a woman in a crowd touching the clothes of Jesus (center, dressed in white) and being healed of her blood disease. 

"And there was a certain woman having an issue of blood twelve years, who had bestowed all her substance on physicians, and could not be healed by any. She came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment; and immediately the issue of her blood stopped. And Jesus said: Who is it that touched me? And all denying, Peter and they that were with him said: Master, the multitudes throng and press thee, and dost thou say, Who touched me?

And Jesus said: Somebody hath touched me; for I know that virtue is gone out from me. And the woman seeing that she was not hid, came trembling, and fell down before his feet, and declared before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was immediately healed. But he said to her: Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go thy way in peace." — Luke 8:43-48
