|And when Jesus came to the ruler’s house and saw the flute players and the crowd making a commotion,|
|He said, Depart, for the girl has not died but is sleeping. And they laughed scornfully at Him.|
|But when the crowd had been put out, He entered and took hold of her hand, and the girl rose up.|
|And this report went out into all that land.|
The daughter here and Peter’s mother-in-law in 8:14-15, both representing the Jews at the end of this age, were healed in a house by the Lord’s coming and direct touch. This indicates that at the end of this age all the remnant of the Jews will be saved in the house of Israel by the Lord’s coming and His direct touch (Rom. 11:25-26; Zech. 12:10).
By this we see that the Lord Jesus intended to raise the Jews, but that they did not have the faith. This gave an excellent chance to the Gentiles to contact the Lord to receive salvation. After the fullness of the salvation of the Gentiles, the Lord Jesus will reach the house of Israel, and all the dead Jews will be healed.
