The Raising of Lazarus

I love to post this clip, every Eastertime, from The Greatest Story Ever Told, of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. “I am the resurrection, and the life…” This is Jesus Christ the Lord: His works testify that He is indeed who He says He is.

The screenplay adds a nice little touch of irony. Here, the first of the disciples to understand what he has just seen, and to run to Jerusalem to tell everyone about it… is Thomas! Not in the Bible, of course.
