Review: 7:31-37 If the people in the region where amazed at what Jesus had done for the demon possessed man in chapter 5, here they were overwhelmed with amazement or utterly amazed because here was a man they brought to Jesus who was deaf and dumb, both incredibly real physical problems.

Return, Repentance, Revenge, Report Review 5:21-24a Jairus, one of the synagogue officials, an important and respected man in the community came to Jesus with an attitude of selflessness, humility, and belief that Jesus could heal his daughter.
