Christ raiseth Lazarus, four days buried.
John 11:1 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, of the village of Mary and Martha her sister. John 11:2 And Mary was she who anointed the Lord with perfume, and wiped his feet with her hairwhose brother Lazarus was sick. John 11:3 The sisters, therefore, sent out unto him, sayingLord, see! he whom thou tenderly lovest, is sick. John 11:4 But Jesus hearing, saidThis sickness, is not unto death, but for the glory of God,that the Son of God may be glorified thereby. John 11:5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. John 11:6 When, therefore, he heard that he was sick, then, indeed, he abode in the place where he was, two days. John 11:7 Then, after this, he saith unto the disciplesLet us be leading on into Judaea, again. John 11:8 The disciples say unto himRabbi! just now, were the Jews seeking to stone theeand, again, goest thou thither? John 11:9 Jesus answeredAre there not, twelve hours, in the day? If one walk in the day, he doth no stumble, because, the light of this world, he seeth; John 11:10 But, if one walk in the night, he stumbleth, because, the light, is not in him. John 11:11 These things, he said, and, after this, he saith unto themLazarus, our dear friend, hath fallen asleep; but I am going, that I may awake him. John 11:12 The disciples, therefore, said unto himLord! if he have fallen asleep, he will recover. John 11:13 But Jesus had spoken concerning his death; whereas, they, supposed that, concerning the taking of rest in sleep, he had been speaking. John 11:14 Jesus, therefore, then, said unto them, plainly,Lazarus, died; John 11:15 and I rejoice, for your sakethat ye may believe,that I was not there; but let us be going unto him. John 11:16 Thomas, therefore, the one called Didymus, said unto his fellow-disciplesLet, us also, be going, that we may die with him. John 11:17 Jesus, therefore, coming, found that, four days already, had he been in the tomb. John 11:18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off; John 11:19 and, many from among the Jews, had come unto Martha and Mary, that they might console them concerning their brother. John 11:20 Martha, therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet him; but, Mary, in the house, remained sitting. John 11:21 Martha, therefore, said unto JesusLord! if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died; John 11:22 And, now, I know, that, whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God, will give unto thee. John 11:23 Jesus saith unto herThy brother shall rise. John 11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise, in the resurrection, in the last day. John 11:25 Jesus said unto herI, am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, even though he die, shall live again! John 11:26 And, no one who liveth again and believeth on me, shall in anywise die, unto times age-abiding. Believest thou this? John 11:27 She saith unto himYea, Lord! I, have believed, that, thou, art the Christ, the Son of God,He who, into the world, should come. John 11:28 And this saying, she went away, and called Mary her sister, secretly, sayingThe teacher, is present, and calleth thee. John 11:29 And, she, when she heard, was roused up quickly, and was coming unto him. John 11:30 Not yet, however, had Jesus come into the village, but was still in the place where, Martha, met him. John 11:31 The Jews, therefore, who were with her in the house and consoling her, seeing Mary, that quickly she arose and went out, followed her, supposing that she was withdrawing unto the tomb, that she might weep there. John 11:32 Mary, therefore, when she came where Jesus was, seeing him, fell at his feet, saying unto himLord! if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. John 11:33 Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, was indignant in the spirit, and troubled himself, John 11:34 and saidWhere have ye laid him? They say unto himLord! come and see. John 11:35 Jesus wept. John 11:36 The Jews, therefore, were sayingSee! how tenderly he loved him! John 11:37 But, some from among them, saidCould not this man, who opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that, this one also, should not have died? John 11:38 Jesus, therefore, again, being indignant within himself, cometh unto the tomb. Now it was a cave, and, a stone, was lying thereon. John 11:39 Jesus, saith, Take ye away the stone! Martha, the sister of the deceased, saith unto himLord! by this time, he stinketh, for it is, four days. John 11:40 Jesus saith unto herSaid I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldst believe, thou shouldst see the glory of God? John 11:41 So they took away the stone. And, Jesus, lifted up his eyes on high, and saidFather! I thank thee, thou didst hear me: John 11:42 I, indeed, knew that, always, unto me, thou dost hearken; but, for the sake of the multitude standing around, I spake,that they might believe that, thou, didst send me forth. John 11:43 And, these things, having said, with a loud voice, he cried outLazarus! Come forth! John 11:44 He that was dead came forth, bound feet and hands with bandages, and, his face, with a napkin, was bound about. Jesus saith unto themLoose him, and let him go.
Many Jews believe.
John 11:45 Many therefore from among the Jews, who had come unto Mary, and gazed on what he did, believed on him John 11:46 but, certain from among them, went away unto the Pharisees, and told them what Jesus had done.
The high priests and Pharisees gather a council against Christ.
John 11:47 The High-priests and Pharisees, therefore, brought together a high-council, and were sayingWhat are we to do, in that, this man, doeth, many signs? John 11:48 If we let him alone thus, all, will believe on him, and the Romans will come, and take away, both our place and nation.
John 11:49 But, a certain one from among them, Caiaphas, being, High-priest, for that year, said unto themYe, know, nothing at all; John 11:50 nor do ye take into account, that it is profitable for you that, one man, should die for the people, and not, the whole nation, perish. John 11:51 This, however, from himself, he spake not, but, being, High-priest, for that year, he prophesied, that Jesus was about to die for the nation; John 11:52 and, not for the nation only, but that, the scattered children of God also, he might gather together into one. John 11:53 From that day, therefore, they took counsel, that they might put him to death.
Jesus hid himself.
John 11:54 Jesus, therefore, no longer openly, was walking among the Jews, but departed thence, into the country near the desert, unto a city called, Ephraim; and, there, abode, with his disciples.
At the Passover they enquire after him, and lay wait for him.
John 11:55 Now the passover of the Jews was at hand, and many went up unto Jerusalem, out of the country, before the passover, that they might purify themselves. John 11:56 They were therefore seeking Jesus, and were saying one to another, in the temple, standingHow seemeth it unto you? that he will in nowise come unto the feast? John 11:57 Now the High-priests and the Pharisees had given commands, that, if anyone came to know where he was, he should inform [them], so that they might seize him.
