Affected Teaching
Here Peter, James, and John had the privilege to witness another miracle of the Lord Jesus Christ. The daughter of Jairus was sick unto death and while the Lord Jesus was coming to his house, Jesus had stopped to deal with the woman who had the issue of blood. It was during this time that Jairus had sent word to the Lord Jesus that the girl had died. This is a similar situation to that of Lazarus. Jesus had delayed His coming and Lazarus had died but it was for a purpose to show the people that the Lord Jesus had power over death, thus confirming His deity. Here Jesus delayed His coming and the girl had died but He sent word back to Jairus that he needed to have faith and believe and she would be made whole. Jesus had come into the house and saw the wailing. He told them that she was not dead but was sleeping. The reaction turned instantly from sadness to laughter. The problem is that when we see something from man’s point of view and then neglect God’s point of view, it can be disastrous. It is like going to the funeral of a Christian. We see a body in a casket which is dead but we do not see from God’s vantage point that they are in Heaven more alive than they were here. Then we come to verse 54 where Jesus takes all the unbelievers and puts them out of the room because of their mocking unbelief.
 
(Mark 6:5-6 KJV) And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. {6} And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching. These unbelievers did not believe that Jesus could cure her and therefore because of their unbelief, Jesus had sent them away. If they would have shown faith, Jesus might have let them stay to witness the miracle of resurrection. The modern versions leave out the part where the unbelievers were cast out of the room and this is a very integral part of the narrative. As we read in Mark 6:5-6, that Jesus could do no mighty works because of the unbelief of the people. (Heb 11:6 KJV) But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. We find that principle in Hebrews 11:6, that those who come to God must believe that He is and He is to be approached with faith. This is why Jesus had to put the unbelievers out of the room because they did not believe God and they did not approach Him in faith. The King James Bible gives us the complete narrative by keeping that portion of Scripture in, it helps teach us that we must never come to God without faith or we must never adopt a mocking spirit because of viewing things from only our point of view.
