Days (3)

One of Jesus? friends, Lazarus, died. Four days later, Jesus arrived in the town where Lazarus was buried.
Lazarus? sisters, Mary and Martha, took Jesus to the tomb where Lazarus was buried. Jesus told some people to move the stone away from the entrance to the tomb. But Martha said to Jesus, ?But Lord, it has been four days since Lazarus died. There will be a bad smell? (verse 39b). Lazarus had been dead four days. His body had started to decay.
The people moved the stone away from the tomb. Jesus prayed to God. Then He called out in a loud voice, ?Lazarus, come out!? Lazarus came out of the tomb. He was alive again. This was a miracle ? something that could only happen with God?s power. Jesus brought Lazarus back to life, after he was dead for four days!
Many people who saw this miracle believed that Jesus was truly God?s Son. We can read about this miracle in the Bible. This helps us believe that Jesus is God?s Son.
