    Luke 8:43-48 King James Version (KJV)
    43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

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

    45 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?

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

    47 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.

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

    Only Christianity can give such strong faith :) What a great story!

    The Quran has some good stories to tell. However, not as many as the New Testament. The Qur'an is in many ways the opposite message though. I don't know how to prove that one is more true than the other. If the Quran contained the same message, I would advocate for Islam.

    I feel sorry for the lady especially since she spent all of her money on physicians in vain. I'm sure there were a lot of people like her that never got healed.

    Of course, the reason why she would have normally been forbidden to touch a man is because the sacred text (Leviticus 15:19-33) dictated that women who are menstruating were unclean, shunned from normal society until they are well.
