"I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"Martha replied,
"Yes, Lord, I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world."Martha made a profound statement of faith. Even though she mourned the death of her brother, Lazarus, she clearly and firmly believed in the power of Jesus. When Martha's sister Mary showed up at the tomb, weeping. Stirred by his own strong emotions, Jesus too wept. As the evangelist John wrote: "He became deeply troubled." Jesus went to the tomb. Martha warned him that Lazarus' dead body would be giving off a stench, since it had lain in the tomb for four days. Jesus prayed aloud to the heavenly Father.
"Father, I thank you for hearing me. I know that you always hear me; but because of the crowd Here I have said this, that they may believe that you sent me."And when he had said this, he cried out in a loud voice,
"Lazarus come out!"The dead man came out, tied hands and foot with burial bands....So Jesus said to them,
"Untie him and let him go."www.pauline.org
