But when he had sent them all out, he took the child’s father and mother, along with his companions, and entered the child’s room. He clasped the girl’s hand and said, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl, get up.” At that, she was up and walking around! This girl was twelve years of age. They, of course, were all beside themselves with joy. He gave them strict orders that no one was to know what had taken place in that room. Then he said, “Give her something to eat.”
— Mark 5:41-43
Mark, the first gospel written, is always so secretive about just how Jesus does what he does. While Jesus is careful to not reveal how miracles happen, but he is very quick to make sure people see that a miracle actually occurred. Few were there for the girl’s resuscitation, but everyone is there to see her eat real food again. For Jesus, the proof of new life is the important thing.
