Jesus heals physically and emotionally

We saw some more of the DVD today. In it we saw Jesus heal a Gentile (non Jewish) womans daughter, have deep chat with Mary Magdalane and heal Lazarus.

First Jesus heals the Gentile womans daughter after some persuasion from her. The disciples seem shocked that he would do that for someone who is not a Jew. Jesus reveals that his ministry is not just for the Jews.

Later Jesus has a conversation with Mary M about how she can be a disciple of his if she speaks for him just like the men, and also that he sins are in the past and she should move on from them.

Finally we see Jesus go to Mary and Martha whose brother Lazarus has died. He seems to have waited too long to save him. However instead Jesus raises him from the dead even though he had been in a tomb for four days and was smelling bad.

So in these stories we see that Jesus can heal people both physically like the Gentile womans daughter and Lazarus and emotionally from their past like with Mary M.
What healing do you need most physical or emotional?
