Jairus

Additional Links

(Ιάειρος, (See JAIR) ), an otherwise unknown ruler of the synagogue at Capernaum, whose only daughter Jesus restored to life (Mark 5:22; Luke 8:41; comp. Matthew 9:18). A.D. 27. Some have wrongly inferred from our Savior's words, "The maid is not dead(, but sleepeth" (Hautenberg, in the Hannov. Beiträ g. z. Nutz. u. Vergnü g. 1761, p. 88; Olshausen, Comment. 1, 321), that the girl was only in a swoon (see Neander, Lebene Jesu, p. 347).
