John 11 – Come Forth

At Jesus home away from home outside of Jerusalem his good friend Lazarus gets sick. His sisters send word to Jesus who intentionally does not come in time to save him. Lazarus dies. Jesus makes the point to his disciples that all of this is a set-up for God’s glory, which is the point in life anyway. When Jesus arrives, the emotion of the scene get to him. What is at play both in the physical dimension and in the spiritual dimension is dramatic and intense. Jesus overcomes death, and brings Lazarus back to life.
