View of the mosaic of Jesus raising the daughter of Jairus, "one of the synagogue rulers."  Jairus, his wife and daughter are visible with Jesus in the doorway and in the window are Peter, James, and John (see text below).

On the left side of the street note the fish being washed in a pool and then fish, bread, and wine being displayed for sale on the shelving on the left side of the image.

Mark 5:37     He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James.  38 When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly.  39 He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” 40 But they laughed at him.    After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was.  41 He took her by the hand and said to her, Talitha koum!” (which means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”).  42 Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished.  43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.
