Many people surrounded Jesus, including a ruler of the synagogue:
Now when Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered to Him; and He was by the sea. And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet…
– Mark 5.21–22
A ruler fell at the feet of a carpenter/teacher! The ruler also begged Jesus to come and heal the ruler’s daughter:
and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.”
– Mark 5.23
The man got what he wanted because he humbled himself before Jesus, and the man did that knowing what Jesus could do. The man had faith in Jesus.
