11:32 She fell at his feet - This Martha had not done. So she makes amends for her slowness in coming.

    We need to heed ...while it's still day! we will by edifying the body and by witnessing to the lost. this chapter shows that there is a resurrection and also a separation from God...John 9:4 there is a time when no man can work.
  • Getto John
    It may have happened, but the Bible is a metaphor of how we're to spend time on earth. There's glory with God, here and in heaven. On earth there is trouble and floundering, doubt and disgrace. And Rome gave up on a reunion with Jesus. So why wait for his return any longer. God is who I believe, not man! His word brings life to the dead, after a time of trial of faith. On earth, troubles!!

    (25-26 are great example of the power of GOD as it relates to life, death, resurrection from the dead;) 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live; 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. believest thou this?

    Witnessing the resurrection of Lazarus would’ve been a marvelous sight and a sweet reunion with his sisters.
