Watch: What You Might Not Have Known About the Woman with an Issue of Blood + the Symbolism of Jesus's Garment

In Matthew 9, we read the inspiring story of the woman with the issue of blood. Plagued with this incurable condition for 12 years, this woman had the faith to be healed if she ". . . but only touched his [Christ's] garment" (Matthew 9:21). 

But what you might not have known is why this simple act could have been seen as a grave offense and why the fringe of Christ's garment was so significant. 

In the video below, Daniel Smith from Messages of Christ explains what we may not already know about this story of faith and compassion.
