Leah Bat Jairus

 

Pronunciation:  LAY-uh

Occurrences:  3  (Commentary only)

Reference:  Azrael’s Commentary — Jairus         Yeshua 13:45-70

 

 

See:  Capernaum, Jairus, Mishkah, Yeshua

 

Summary:  Mentioned by name only in Azrael’s Commentary, Leah was the only daughter of Mishkah and Jairus, the chief rabbi of Capernaum in the days of Yeshua (AZC - Jairus). Jairus pleaded with Yeshua to heal his daughter, who had remained sick despite all efforts by physicians to cure her (Y:13:45-48). On their way to the household, Yeshua and Jairus were informed by a servant that Leah had already died, but Yeshua consoled the grief-stricken father, saying: “Do not weep Jairus, neither be afraid but believe only; for with God are all things possible (Y:13:59).” Yeshua then told the crowd not to weep, claiming the child was not yet dead, but only sleeping. Arriving at the home of Jairus, Yeshua revived Leah, and the family became devout followers from that day forth (Y:13:60-70). Jairus was later expelled from his congregation due to controversy surrounding his belief in Yeshua.

 

 

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.
