The Life of Jesus in Harmony
esus Raises Lazarus from the Dead
Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
It was that Mary who anointed the Lord with fragrant oil and wiped His feet
with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, "Lord, behold, he whom You love is
When Jesus heard that, He said, "This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it."
Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
So, when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where
Then after this He said to the disciples, "Let us go to Judea again."
The disciples said to Him, "Rabbi, lately the Jews sought to stone You, and
are You going there again?"
Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does
not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
"But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him."
These things He said, and after that He said to them, "Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up."
Then His disciples said, "Lord, if he sleeps he will get well."
However, Jesus spoke of his death, but they thought that He was speaking about taking rest in sleep.
Then Jesus said to them plainly, "Lazarus is dead.
"And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, that you may believe.
Nevertheless let us go to him."
Then Thomas, who is called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, that
we may die with Him."
So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in the tomb four days.
Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles away.
And many of the Jews had joined the women around Martha and Mary, to comfort
them concerning their brother.
Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him, but
Mary was sitting in the house.
Then Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not
"But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You."
Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again."
Martha said to Him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die,
he shall live.
"And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?"
She said to Him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world."
And when she had said these things, she went her way and secretly called Mary
her sister, saying, "The Teacher has come and is calling for you."
As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly and came to Him.
Now Jesus had not yet come into the town, but was in the place where Martha
Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and comforting her, when they
saw that Mary rose up quickly and went out, followed her, saying, "She is going
to the tomb to weep there."
Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet,
saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died."
Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping,
He groaned in the spirit and was troubled.
And He said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to Him, "Lord, come and see."
Then the Jews said, "See how He loved him!"
And some of them said, "Could not this Man, who opened the eyes of the blind,
also have kept this man from dying?"
Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a
stone lay against it.
Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, "Lord, by this time
there is a stench, for he has been dead four days."
Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of
Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And
Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, "Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.
"And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are
standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me."
Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!"
And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Loose him, and let him go."
Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and had seen the things Jesus did,
believed in Him.
But some of them went away to the Pharisees and told them the things Jesus did.
An Outline of The Life of Jesus in Harmony
"I marvel that whereas the
ambitious dreams of myself, Caesar, and Alexander should have
vanished into thin air, a Judean peasant - Jesus should be able to
stretch his hands across the centuries and control the destinies of
men and nations." - Napoleon
