“Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.”
King James Version (KJV)
11:1 One Lazarus - It is probable, Lazarus was younger than his sisters. Bethany is named, the town of Mary and Martha, and Lazarus is mentioned after them, #John 11:5|. Ecclesiastical history informs us, that Lazarus was now thirty years old, and that he lived thirty years after Christ's ascension.
