Lazarus


Why did Jesus bring Lazarus back to life?

        Jesus had three good friends, Mary, Martha, and their brother, Lazarus. Jesus visited them whenever he was near their house. One day the two sisters sent a message. "Jesus, come quickly! Lazarus is very sick!"

    But by the time he reached his friends' home, Lazarus had already died. Mary and Martha were very sad. Jesus walded to the place where Lazarus' body was buried. In a loud voice he called, "Lazarus, come out!" Out from the tomb walked the once dead man, alive once more!
