What Has Gone Before:
WHILE Jesus was at Bethabara beyond Jordan, and ready to begin preaching in the
land of Perea, he was suddenly called back to the village of Bethany, on the
Mount of Olives, near Jerusalem. You remember that Martha, and Mary, and
Lazarus, the friends of Jesus, were living in this place....

Jesus said to her, “I am the
resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall
live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe
this?” ~John 11:25-26

|The word came to Jesus that Lazarus was very ill. But Jesus did not hurry
away from Bethabara to go to Bethany. He stayed two days, and then he said to
his disciples, "Let us go again into Judea, near Jerusalem." The disciples said
to Jesus, "Master, when we were in Judea last the people tried to stone you and
to kill you; and now would you go there again?"
Jesus said, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I go that I may awake him
out of his sleep." The disciples said, "Master, if he has fallen asleep, he may
be well." For they thought that Jesus was speaking of taking rest in sleep; but
Jesus meant that Lazarus was dead. Then Jesus said to them, "Lazarus is dead;
and I am glad that I was not there to keep him alive; for now you will be led to
believe in me all the more fully. But let us now go to him."
Then one of the disciples, named Thomas, said to the others, "Let us also go,
and die with our Master!" So Jesus left Bethabara with his disciples, and came
to Bethany; and then he found Lazarus had been buried four days.

|Many of the Jews had come to comfort Martha and Mary in the loss of their brother. They told
Martha that Jesus was coming, and she went to meet him, but Mary sat still in
the house. As soon as Martha saw Jesus, she said to him very sadly, "Lord, if
you had been here, my brother need not have died. And even now, I know that God
will give you whatever you may ask."
Jesus said to her, "Your brother shall rise again."
"I know that he shall rise," said Martha, "when the last day comes, and all the
dead are raised."
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection, the raising from the dead; and I am
the life. Whoever believes on me, even though he may die, he shall live; and
whoever lives and believes on me shall never die. Do you believe this?"
She said to him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, the one who comes into the world."
He said, "Where have you
|Then Martha went to her home, and said to her
sister Mary, but quietly, so that no other person heard her, "The Master is
here, and he asks for you!"
At once Mary rose up to go to Jesus. Her friends thought that she was going to
her brother's tomb, and they went with her. Jesus was still at the place where
Martha had met him, near the village. When Mary came to him, she fell down at
his feet, and said, as her sister had said, "Lord, if you had been here, my
brother need not have died!"
When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews weeping with her, he also was touched, and groaned in his spirit, and was filled with sorrow.
Raising Of Lazarus
Frans Francken the Younger
They showed him the place where Lazarus was buried, a cave, with a stone laid
upon the door. Jesus wept as he stood near it, and the Jews said, "See how he
But some of them said, "If this man could open the eyes of the blind, why is it
that he could not keep this man whom he loved from dying?" Jesus, standing
before the cave, and still groaning within, said, "Take away the stone!" Martha
said, "Lord, by this time his body has begun to decay, for he has been dead four
days." Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you would believe, you
should see the glory of God?"
They took away the stone, as Jesus had commanded. Then Jesus lifted up his eyes
toward heaven, and said, "Father, I thank thee that thou did hear me. I know
that thou does hear me always; but because of those who are standing here I
spoke, so that they may believe that thou hast sent me."
Then, with a loud voice, Jesus called out, " Lazarus, come forth!"
And the man who had been four days dead came out of the tomb. His body, and
hands, and feet were wrapped round and round with grave bands, and over his face
was bound a napkin. Jesus said to those standing near. "Loose him, and let him
When they saw the wonderful power of Jesus in raising Lazarus to life many of
the people believed in Jesus. But others went away and told the Pharisees and
rulers what Jesus had done. They called a meeting of all the rulers, the great
council of the Jews, and they said, "What shall we do, for this man is doing
many works of wonder? If we let him alone everybody will believe on him, and
will try to make him the king; and then the Romans will make war upon us and
destroy our nation and our people."
But the high-priest Caiaphas said, "It is better for us that one man should die
for the people than that our whole nation should be destroyed. Let us put this
man to death."
And to this they agreed, and from that day all the rulers found plans to have
Jesus slain. But Jesus knew their purpose, for he knew all things. His time to
die had not yet come, and he went away with his disciples to a city near the
wilderness and not far from Bethabara, where he had been before. And from this
place he went forth to preach in the land of Perea, into which he had sent the
seventy disciples, as we read in the last story.
