In chapter five Mark discusses of a time when a bleeding woman touches Jesus’s clothing and Jesus said she is healed through her pure faith. Also in this chapter Jesus travels to Jarius’s house to help a sick girl. When he gets there everyone says the girl is dead, but Jesus says not to worry that she is just asleep. The girl then wakes up after Jesus tells her too. In chapter 8 Mark tells that Jesus feeds a group of over 4000 with only 7 loafs of bread and there are even baskets left over. Also in this chapter Jesus tells his disciples that he must be persecuted and put to death but he will then rise in three days. Another miracle is mentioned in Mark chapter 9.
