John 11:17-27

  1. By Dealing With Reality (17-24)

On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem, and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home. “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

  1. By Embodying the Solution (25-26a)

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”

  1. By Expecting Our Response (26b-27)

“Do you believe this?”   “Yes, Lord,” she told him, “I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.”
