Two people come to Jesus in their needs.
They are very different:
There's a named, powerful, rich, respected man who has had 12 years of joy with his daughter
There's an unnamed, unclean, impoverished woman who has had 12 years of suffering
Tragedy brings them down to the feet of Jesus.
But Jesus drives them down further before raising them up.
This is the way of the cross.
This is where Jesus is known.
