Jairus told Jesus both things—that his daughter lay at the point of death, and that she was already dead. When Jairus left his daughter, she was about to die, and Jairus assumed that by this time she already had died (later reports confirmed this: see Luke 8:49), though perhaps he was still hopeful that she hadn’t. He loved his daughter and was probably very worked up, which makes sense when we compare the statements he told Jesus.
