Apr 22 6.38 While he spoke, message came to Jairus from home, saying, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the teacher anymore?”

Jesus overheard and said to Jairus, “Dont fear, only believe.” Taking Peter, James and his brother John, Jesus went to Jairus home, forbidding others to follow. When they arrived, they entered the house where many people wept loudly. Jesus asked them, “Why all this wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” They mocked him. But Jesus put them out and took the parents, Peter, James and John into her room. Taking her by the hand, Jesus said, “Girl, I tell you, rise!” Immediately, her spirit returned, the twelve-year-old girl rose and walked, astounding those present. Jesus gave strict orders to tell no one and to feed the child. But the news went throughout the region.
