Jairus

Additional Links

"Jair." Ruler of a synagogue in a town near the lake of Gall lee, probably Capernaum. Jesus raised her to life immediately after death (Matthew 9:18; Mark 5:22; Luke 8:41). The recurrence of the name in the same region, after the lapse of ages, is an undesigned coincidence, a mark of the truth of the sacred narrative.
