The Death and Resurrection of Lazarus1 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of a Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister b Martha. 2 It was the Mary who c anointed d the Lord with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. 3 So the sisters sent word to Him, saying e “Lord, behold f he whom You love is sick.” 4 But when Jesus heard this, He said, “This sickness is not to end in death, but for g the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by it.” 5 Now Jesus loved h Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6 So when He heard that he was sick, He then stayed two days longer in the place where He was. 7 Then after this He said to the disciples, i “Let us go to Judea again.” 8 The disciples said to Him, j “Rabbi, the Jews were just now seeking k to stone You, and are You going there again?” 9 Jesus answered, l “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. 10 “But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.” 11 This He said, and after that He said to them, “Our m friend Lazarus n has fallen asleep; but I go, so that I may awaken him out of sleep.” 12 The disciples then said to Him, “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will ▼
▼ Lit be savedrecover.” 13 Now p Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that He was speaking of ▼
▼ Lit the slumber of sleepliteral sleep. 14 So Jesus then said to them plainly, “Lazarus is dead, 15 and I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, so that you may believe; but let us go to him.” 16 r Therefore Thomas, who is called ▼
▼ I.e. the Twin, t Didymus, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, so that we may die with Him.” 17 So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in the tomb u four days. 18 Now v Bethany was near Jerusalem, about ▼
▼ Lit 15 stadia (9,090 ft)two miles off; 19 and many of x the Jews had come to y Martha and Mary z to console them concerning their brother. 20 aa Martha therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet Him, but ab Mary ▼
▼ Lit was sittingstayed at the house. 21 Martha then said to Jesus ad “Lord ae if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 “Even now I know that af whatever You ask of God, God will give You.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to Him, ag “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, ah “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in Me ai will never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to Him, “Yes, Lord; I have believed that You are ▼
▼ I.e. the Messiah, ak the Christ, the Son of God, even ▼
▼ The Coming One was the Messianic title, am He who comes into the world.” 28 When she had said this, she an went away and called Mary her sister, saying secretly ao “The Teacher is here and is calling for you.” 29 And when she heard it, she got up quickly and was coming to Him. 30 Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but ap was still in the place where Martha met Him. 31 aq Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and ar consoling her, when they saw that Mary got up quickly and went out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there. 32 Therefore, when Mary came where Jesus was, she saw Him, and fell at His feet, saying to Him, as “Lord at if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and au the Jews who came with her also weeping, He av was deeply moved in spirit and ▼
▼ Lit troubled Himself, ax was troubled, 34 and said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to Him, “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus ay wept. 36 So az the Jews were saying, “See how He ba loved him!” 37 But some of them said, “Could not this man, who bb opened the eyes of the blind man ▼
▼ Lit have caused that this man also not diehave kept this man also from dying?” 38 So Jesus, again being deeply moved within, came to the tomb. Now it was a bd cave, and a stone was lying against it. 39 Jesus said, “Remove the stone.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to Him, “Lord, by this time ▼
▼ Lit he stinksthere will be a stench, for he has been dead bf four days.” 40 Jesus said to her, bg “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” 41 So they removed the bh stone. Then Jesus bi raised His eyes, and said, bj “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. 42 “I knew that You always hear Me; but bk because of the ▼
▼ Lit crowdpeople standing around I said it, so that they may believe that bm You sent Me.” 43 When He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.” 44 The man who had died came forth bn bound hand and foot with wrappings, and bo his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” 45 bp Therefore many of the Jews bq who came to Mary, and br saw what He had done, believed in Him. 46 But some of them went to the bs Pharisees and told them the things which Jesus had done.
Conspiracy to Kill Jesus47 Therefore bt the chief priests and the Pharisees bu convened a bv council, and were saying, “What are we doing? For this man is performing many ▼
▼ Or attesting miracles, bx signs. 48 “If we let Him go on like this, all men will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our by place and our nation.” 49 But one of them, bz Caiaphas ca who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all, 50 nor do you take into account that cb it is expedient for you that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation not perish.” 51 Now he did not say this ▼
▼ Lit from himselfon his own initiative, but cd being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, 52 and not for the nation only, but in order that He might also ce gather together into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. 53 So from that day on they cf planned together to kill Him. 54 Therefore Jesus cg no longer continued to walk publicly among the Jews, but went away from there to the country near the wilderness, into a city called ch Ephraim; and there He stayed with the disciples. 55 Now ci the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the Passover cj to purify themselves. 56 So they ck were seeking for Jesus, and were saying to one another as they stood in the temple, “What do you think; that He will not come to the feast at all?” 57 Now cl the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where He was, he was to report it, so that they might seize Him.
