Raising Of Dead
Matthew 9: 18, 19, 24-26
A Jewish official came to him, knelt down before him, and said, “My daughter has just died; but come and place your hands on her, and she will live.”
So Jesus got up and followed him, and his disciples went along with him.
He said, “Get out, everybody! The little girl is not dead- she is only sleeping!” They all started making fun of him.
But as soon as the people had been put out, Jesus went into the girl’s room and took hold of her hand, and she got up.
The news about this spread all over that part of the country.
Luke 7: 11-16
Soon afterward Jesus went to a town named Nain, accompanied by his disciples and a large crowd,
Just as he arrived at the gate of the town, a funeral procession was coming out. The dead man as the only son of a woman who was a widow, and a large crowd from the town was with her.
When the LORD saw her, his heart was filled with pity for her, and he said to her, “Don’t cry.”
Then he walked over and touched the coffin, and the men carrying it stopped. Jesus said, “Young man! Get up, I tell you!”
The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
They all were filled with fear and praised GOD. “A great prophet has appeared among us!” they said; “GOD has come to save his people!”
John 11: 32-44
Mary arrived where Jesus was, and as soon as she saw him, she fell at his feet. “LORD,” she said, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died!”
Jesus saw her weeping, and he saw how the people with her were weeping also; his heart was touched, and he was deeply moved.
“Where have you buried him?” he asked them.
“Come and see, LORD,” they answered.
“See how much he loved him!” the people said.
But some of them said, “He gave sight to the blind man, didn’t he? Could he not kept Lazarus from dying?”
Deeply moved once more, Jesus went to the tomb, which was a cave with a stone placed at the entrance.
“Take the stone away!” Jesus ordered.
Martha the dead man’s sister, answered, “There will be a bad smell, LORD. He has been buried four days!”
Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see GOD’s glory if you believed?”
They took the stone away, Jesus looked up and said, ” I thank you Father, that you listen to me. I know that you always listen to me, but I say this for the sake of the people here, so that they will believe that you sent me.”
After he had said this, he called out, in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”
He came out, his hands and feet wrapped in grave cloths, and with a cloth around his face. “Untie him,” Jesus told them, “and let him go.”
