The Gospel According to Luke

Chapter 11

Now, a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) Therefore his sisters sent a message to Jesus, saying, Lord, your friend who you love is sick.

When Jesus heard that, He said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified by it. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus so when He heard that he was sick, he stayed for two days still in the same place where He was.

Then after that He said to His disciples, Let us go into Judea again. His disciples said, Master, the Jews recently tried to stone you; and you're going there again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he doesn't stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbles, as there is no light in him.

Then He said, Our friend Lazarus sleeps; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. His disciples said, Lord, if he sleeps, he shall do well. However, Jesus spoke of Lazarus' death: but they thought that He had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then Jesus said to them plainly, Lazarus is dead, and I'm glad for your sakes that I wasn't there, so that you may believe; nevertheless let's go to him. Then Thomas said, Let us go also, so we may die with him.

Then when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had lain in the grave four days already. Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs away (about 2 miles), and many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him: but Mary sat still in the house. Then Martha said to Jesus, Lord, if you had been here, my brother wouldn't have died. But I know, that even now, whatever you will ask of God, He will give it to you.

Jesus said to her, Your brother shall rise again. Martha said to him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this? She answered Him, Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

When she had said this, she went her way and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master wants you. When Mary heard that, she immediately went to Jesus.

Now, Jesus had not yet entered into the town, but was in that place where Martha met Him. The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw that Mary rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She's going to the grave to weep there.

When Mary found where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, Lord, if you had been here, my brother wouldn't have died. When Jesus then saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, He groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, and said, Where have you laid him? They said to Him, Lord, come and see.

Here is the most popular part of the Raising of Lazarus Bible story. The Bible says ... Jesus wept.

Then the Jews said, Behold how He loved him! Some of them said, Couldn't this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have kept this man from dying? Jesus again groaning in Himself came to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone covered it.

Jesus said, Take away the stone. Martha said to Him, Lord, by this time he stinks, he has been dead four days. Jesus said to her, Didn't I say that if you would believe, you would see the glory of God? Then they took away the stone from the place where Lazarus was buried. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that you hear me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that you have sent me.

Then Jesus cried with a loud voice:

Lazarus, come forth.

And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped around with a napkin. Jesus said to them, Loose him, and let him go. Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed in Him, but some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them the things Jesus had done. I bet the pharisees did not like the Raising of Lazarus Bible story as much as we do.

Then the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said, What should we do? This man does many miracles. If we leave Him alone, all men will believe in Him: and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation. One of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that year said, You know nothing at all, nor remember that it is advantageous for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

Caiaphas didn't say this of his own doing, but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; and not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from that day on they took counsel together to put Jesus to death.

Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went from there to a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and stayed there with His disciples. Now, with the Raising of Lazarus Bible story being done ... The Jews' Passover was near at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. Then they sought for Jesus, and spoke among themselves as they stood in the Temple, What do you think, that He will not come to the feast?

Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where Jesus was, He should tell it, that they might take Him.

Miracles can and do happen and that those who choose to believe in Jesus are spiritually brought back from the dead and are now ... Alive!
