15And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
15 Verse 15. He touched her hand] Can any thing on this side the
unlimited power of God effect such a cure with only a touch? If
the Scriptures had not spoken of the divinity of Christ, these
proofs of his power must have demonstrated it to the common sense
of every man whose creed had not previously blinded him.
Ministered unto them.] αυτοις, them, is the reading of most of
the printed editions, but αυτω, to him, has the utmost evidence
in its support from MSS., versions, and fathers. Serving Christ
in his ordinances and in his members is the best proof we can give
to others of our being soundly restored to spiritual health.
