New Bible App for Kids Story: Jesus Heals the Daughter of Jairus: “Time to Get Up”

In the latest story from the Bible App for Kids, “Time to Get Up,” Jesus heals the daughter of a leader in the temple. In a story from Luke 8:40–42 and 49–56 in the New Testament, Jairus, an important leader, goes to where Jesus is teaching and asks Him if he will come and help his little girl, who is very sick at home. Jesus leaves with Jairus to go to his house and see her, but before they even get there, a man who works for Jairus meets them with sad news: “Your daughter is already dead.” Jesus tells Jairus not to be afraid, but just to believe.


When Jesus and Jairus get to his house, the people there are very sad because Jairus’ little girl has died. Jesus tells them she’s not dead, just asleep, but they laugh at Him. Jesus goes in to see her, and he takes her mommy and daddy and three of His disciples with Him. Jesus takes her hand and says, “Wake up, little girl, and live again!”

And she does! The little girl’s mommy and daddy are surprised and happy, but Jesus tells them not to tell anyone what has happened. Then he tells them to get her something to eat.
