The FPCP history books state that this section of the Neville Window depicts the story of the raising of Jairus' 12-year old daughter from the dead. Jairus was one of the rulers of the synagogue in Galilee, who fell on his knees and pleaded with Jesus to come place his hands on his daughter so she would be healed and live. Jesus is accompanied by Peter, James, and John.
Messengers came to report that the girl had died. The crowd mocks Jesus, but He says to Jairus, "Do not be afraid; only believe." Jesus went into her room and took her by the hand saying, "Little girl, I say to you: get up!" Immediately she stood up and began to walk around (Mark 5:21-24, 35-42).
This window portrays the amazement of the crowd and the joy of Jairus seated beside his healthy daughter.
(According to the Pittsburgh Gazette Times of 1911, this window illustrates Jesus preaching to his discuples, although there is no other documentation of this interpretation.)
The Neville Window was presented to the glory of God and in memory of General John Neville (1731-1803), Winifred Oldham Neville (1736-1797), Major Isaac Craig (1741-1826), and Amelia Neville (Craig) (1763-1849).
