Coming from Perea, Jesus arrives at the
outskirts of Bethany, a village about two
miles (3 km) east of Jerusalem. Mary and
Martha, the sisters of Lazarus, are
mourning his recent death. Many have
come to console them.
Then someone tells
Martha that Jesus is
approaching, and
she hurries to meet
him. Martha tells
Jesus what she and
her sister have likely
been thinking for
four days: “Lord, if
you had been here, my brother would not
have died.” However, it is not that she has
no hope. “I know that whatever you ask
God for, God will give you,” Martha says.
( John 11:21, 22) She feels that Jesus
might yet help her brother.
Jesus responds: “Your brother will rise.”
Martha concludes that he is referring to a
future resurrection on earth, the hope
that Abraham and others had. And she
expresses her belief that this will surely
occur: “I know he will rise in the
resurrection on the last day.”​—John
11:23, 24.
Yet, could it be that Jesus can provide
immediate relief in this case? He reminds
Martha that he has God-given power over
death, saying: “The one who exercises
faith in me, even though he dies, will
come to life; and everyone who is living
and exercises faith in me will never die at
all.”​— John 11:25, 26.
Jesus is not suggesting that his disciples
then alive will never die. Even he must die,
as he has told his apostles. ( Matthew
16:21; 17:22, 23) Jesus is stressing that
exercising faith in him can lead to
everlasting life. For many, such life will be
gained through a resurrection. However,
faithful ones alive at the end of this
system may never have to die at all. In
either case, everyone who exercises faith
in him can be sure of never facing
permanent death.
But can Jesus, who just said, “I am the
resurrection and the life,” help Lazarus,
now dead for days? Jesus asks Martha:
“Do you believe this?” She answers: “Yes,
Lord, I have believed that you are the
Christ, the Son of God, the one coming
into the world.” With faith that Jesus can
do something that very day, Martha
hurries home and tells her sister privately:
“The Teacher is here and is calling
you.” ( John 11:25-28) At that, Mary leaves
the house, soon to be followed by others,
who assume that she is going to Lazarus’
tomb.
Instead, Mary goes to Jesus, falls at his
feet weeping, and repeats the sentiments
her sister expressed: “Lord, if you had
been here, my brother would not have
died.” Moved at seeing Mary and the
crowds weeping, Jesus groans, becomes
troubled, and even gives way to tears.
That touches the onlookers. But some ask:
‘If Jesus could heal a man born blind,
could he not prevent this one from
dying?’​— John 11:32, 37.
