I heard about this guy whose friend was opening a new business and he thought, 'well he's opening a new business this Wednesday, I better send something there by way of recognition.'

Now when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days. Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles off, and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother.

Jesus in the gospel of John seven times used the words ‘‘I Am’’ to define who He was and to define what He came to do. We have looked at some of these before where Jesus said ‘‘I am the bread of life’’ and when Jesus said, ‘‘I am the good shepherd who grivet His life for His sheep’’. Jesus said I am the resurrection and the...

Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, ''Lord, the one you love is sick.'' When he heard this, Jesus said...

Now, this is a really odd story because Jesus shows up 4 days late for the funeral. John 11:17 tells us ''when Jesus came, He found that (Lazarus) had already been in the tomb four days.'' ILLUS: Now I once showed up ½ hour late for a funeral one time. That wouldn't have been such a bad thing except I was supposed to be the...

All Christians will experience tough times! Some times it seems there is no way out, no escape from the temptation or trial ... but one of the great themes of the Bible is that God always gives us an escape route from the tragic designs Satan has on us! 1 Cor. 10:13 states it this way, "No temptation has seized you except what is...

I want us to visit a man who is well-known in the Bible. He's one of the popular characters of the Bible and his name is Lazarus. Lazarus is the man who was dead and the Lord Jesus Christ came and stood before the tomb and with a loud voice He said, ''Lazarus, come forth.'' Lazarus came forth out of the grave. When he came out the...

Two beliefs formed Mary and Martha's despair over the death of their brother Lazarus. First was their belief in the power and permanence of death.

And Lazarus came forth, for the voice that echoed that day in the gloomy cavern of death at Bethany was the voice of Him who said: "I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore...and have the keys of hell and of death."Jesus once said that the foxes had holes and the birds of the air had nests, but the...
