Program Notes

Talitha cumi or talitha koum is a transcription of an Aramaic phrase found in Mark 5:41. Jesus spoke this when He raised Jairus’s daughter from the dead (Mark 5:21–43). Aramaic was the common, everyday language in Israel at that time. Mark interprets the sentence for us: “Little girl, I say to you, get up!” The account of the healing is also found in Matthew 9 and Luke 8, but only Mark records the Aramaic words that Jesus spoke, talitha cumi.
