Jairus

 

Pronunciation:  JAY-ruhs

Occurrences:   5

First Reference:  Yeshua 13:46-47     (Indirect reference: Yeshua 9:1)

 

And there came and knelt before him the chief rabbi of the synagogue, whose name was Jairus. And he spoke unto him, saying:

“Lord, have mercy, for my little daughter is near unto death. I pray, therefore, come and lay your hands upon her that she might live and not die.”

 

 

See:  Capernaum, Leah, Mishkah, Yeshua

 

Summary:  Jairus was the chief rabbi in Capernaum whose daughter, Leah, was healed by Yeshua (Y:13:45-69). According to Azrael’s Commentary, Jairus and his family became devoted followers of Yeshua, which resulted in Jairus being expelled from the synagogue and his congregation.

 

As a note of interest: it can be assumed that prior to his expulsion, it was Jairus who invited Yeshua to speak on occasion at the synagogue in Capernaum. The scriptures record two of these incidents (Y:9:1-37; Y:16:8-46). According to Azrael, the house Yeshua owned in Capernaum was given to him by Jairus (Y:15:1).

 

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Jairus

 

Chief rabbi of Capernaum, and known for his kindness and good deeds, Jairus was held in high regard by the people of the area. His wife’s name was Mishkah, and his only child, a daughter, was called Leah. After the healing of his daughter, Jairus and his family became followers of Yeshua. This stirred up a great amount of rumor and gossip within the community. The physicians of the area accused Jairus of being deceived by a devil. As a result of this controversy, Jairus was finally expelled from his congregation on the grounds that he had fallen away from the true faith.

 

Being freed from the burdens of being the chief rabbi, Jairus and his family followed Yeshua on his Sidonian mission. He resettled in the city of Tyre where he became a successful merchant and a leading member of a local group of Yeshua’s followers, among which were the twin sisters, Maximilla and Prisca.

 

The young daughter, Leah, became a highly regarded woman. She wrote and sang the first hymns that dealt with the life of Yeshua and his divine calling. Leah lived a long life filled with good deeds. She became known as a great healer, and a champion for the poor.

 

 

Notes/References:

 

Now when it was Sabbath, Yeshua went unto the synagogue to teach the people; and when he was entered in, he saw a man with a withered hand.

Yeshua 9:1

 

Now there gathered in the cool of the day unto the house of the Lord, many of the elders of the people, and there was numbered among them the scribes and the Pharisees.
