Lazarus, Come Forth! – John 11:1-46

By the time we reach chapter 11, Jesus is likely within the final few months of his life on earth. He wants to reach as many people as possible because the time is short. As a result, he is upping his game as it were. In today’s text we will see Jesus perform the ultimate miracle: raising Lazarus from the dead. This is ‘big one’ inasmuch as it shows that Jesus has power over both life and death. After this, there will no longer be any question that Jesus is who he claims to be. Those who refuse to believe – even today – need no further proof. To continue refusing Jesus is to be rebellious and belligerent.
