The Touch

  • Story Origin: An original, fictional story, set against the biblical story of the woman who suffered from bleeding found in Luke 8:43-48.

  • Key Bible Verse: And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. She came up behind Him (Jesus) and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.
