Equal Standing - Women in Luke - Part 8

The woman with the discharge of blood
- she had had her medical problem 12 years
- she had spent all her money (or living) seeking treatment
- no doctor had been able to help her
- she touched the hem of Jesus' garment and was healed instantly
- Jesus made sure her story was known publicly
- Jesus declared that her faith had made her whole
- Jesus told her to go in peace

I can only imagine the emotions she experienced in those few short moments.  Joy and relief that she was healed.  Panic.  Mortification.  Shame.  Reassurance.  Joy renewed.
