Jesus had some close friends; Lazarus and his sisters Mary and Martha. He
often visited in their home. One day Martha sent word to Jesus that Lazarus
was sick, but He didn't go to them right away. He waited and during that time
Lazarus died. When Jesus finally decided to go to Bethany, Lazarus had been
dead for four days. Martha heard that Jesus was coming and she ran out of the
house to meet him. He was at the edge of the town, but had not entered it yet.
She said that if Jesus had been there, Lazarus would not have died. Jesus
said, "Your brother will rise again." Martha thought he was speaking of the
resurrection at the end of time. She didn't seem to understand that Jesus was
talking about a time very soon. Jesus talked to her about the resurrection and
asked her if she believed. She said, "Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the
Christ, the Son of God who was to come into the world." Martha went to get her
sister, Mary, who came and fell at Jesus' feet. She said the same thing that
Martha had said, "If you had been here he would not have died." When Jesus saw
them crying, he also cried with them. They went to the place where Lazarus had
been buried. It was a cave with a stone over the opening. Jesus told them to
take away the stone. Then he prayed to God and said, "Lazarus, come out!", and
from the cave Lazarus came walking out. He was wrapped up with strips of linen
and a cloth around his face. Jesus said, "Take off the grave clothes and let
him go." Mary and Martha and their friends were so happy. Lazarus was alive
and back with them again! After this, many of the Jews believed on Jesus.
