Previous verse: 

And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment.
For she said to herself, “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.”
But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And the woman was made well from that hour.

WOW! That is an ambitious project indeed! I wish you well on your journey!

A quick note about Jesus's halo: the three Greek letters there are Ὁ ὬΝ (the Being One --- the One Who Am). Don't mean to be a stickler or anything, but the letter up on the left (Jesus's right side) looks kind of more like a U.

But I notice the same style on your other illustrations: was there a particular model or icon you drew inspiration from? If so, then kindly disregard the above!

I love how you've drawn their expressions! Peter looks like he wants to get a move on; but the woman looks in such need and Jesus tenderly responds to her.

Thank you so much, especially for constructive criticism.
Yes, I've based the icon on the icon I have in my room, but I suppose I should have looked more closely. Such a fail on my side, but oh well, I'll know in the future.
While the drawing says it's Matthew, the drawing is actually based on the longer version of the story from Luke, where Jesus says that someone pulled him as He felt his power drain away, and Peter commenting something along the lines of - there are so many people around, how could You know?
The pharisee next to Jesus is Jairus; they're on the way to his house to resurrect his daughter. :-)

I guess perhaps, just consider it a design feature or a stylistic quirk!

I certainly wouldn't suggest going back and redrawing everything!

Eh, it wouldn't be much of redrawing - I'd just Photoshop everything, much easier :D
