Why did Jesus say "who touched my robe?" I believe he knew, so why did he ask?

Why do you believe He knew?

Hello Catlover,


I guess He knew, that someone touched Him with the true faith.

And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. Luke 8:43-48.

According to that verse Jesus perceived that virtue was gone out of Him.

Could be because He wanted to remark it into the story that It could help many people afterwards. As it is in the story of Mary:

And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,

And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.

Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.

My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.

Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.

And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace. Luke 7:37,38,44 - 48, 50.

So the humble woman could also have gone quietly after she anointed Jesus, but Jesus saw a lesson hidden in that senario/situation.

God bless you

HE FELT THE POWER OF GOD LEAVE HIS BODY!

Its like the intensity of the anointing was 100%, then it just went down to 90% for a second. and He felt the power leave Him.
Remember He was just like a human like me and you, He was not all knowing. He only knows what the Holy Spirit shows and tells Him.
He looked around trying to find who touched him, Who pulled the power of God from Him.

Luke 5:17 - "....who had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem, were sitting there. And the power of the Lord was present for him to heal the sick"

Now because of her faith, the Power of the Lord went right where she needed it. To her disease!

She also felt the power of God going through her body and she knew she was HEALED!

Even though Jesus knew who touched Him, He wanted her to admit to her faith in Him, and of who He was.

Mark 5:33-35
33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace,

Before we are cleansed of our sin we have to believe in who Jesus Christ is and why He came and we need to repent of our sin. He can then and only then cleanse us from our sin.

I believe she knew who Christ was and had faith in her heart that jesus could cleanse her. She probably heard many of the stories going around about Jesus.

I agree with both of these statements. Kudos for great explanations.:hug:

According to my pastor who had a friend bought an olden days outer garment for man from Israel which has tassels...explain about that verse to us. There were 12 of them...represent 12 tribe of Israel. The woman touch one of that...causing the LORD Jesus to lose power that time...and she was so brave so much faith...compare to us.;)

Jesus limited Himself to our human nature and relied on the Holy Spirit to tell Him what the Father spoke.
He was fully God and yet fully human, so He could qualify as paying the price for our sins.

As for the 90% thing, I dunno - but He sensed that power had gone from/through Him, and He was not sure to whom it went.

And Jesus said, "Who is the one who touched Me?" And while they were all denying it,
Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing in on You."
But Jesus said, "Someone did touch Me, for I was aware that power had gone out of Me."
Luke 8:44,45

I see no reason to believe that Jesus should have known who touched Him. As has been stated, Jesus humbled Himself in the form of a man, and He did not walk about in omniscience. He relied on the Holy Spirit to reveal to Him that sort of stuff.
