Jesus Raises Lazarus (from ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told’)

I like to post this every Easter: the scene from The Greatest Story Ever Told in which Christ raises Lazarus from the dead. (“Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto Him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.” –John 11:39)

Along with the Scriptures themselves, and the testimony of John the Baptist and the apostles, the works that Jesus did bear witness that He is indeed the Son of God, Savior and Messiah, King of kings and Lord of lords.

We believe!

Again, ‘Revive Us Again’

The music for this hymn was written in 1815. Here’s Gary Chapman performing it solo, with guitar.

Do we, the American people, need revival?

Are you kidding? When Jesus came to resurrect Lazarus, Martha protested, “Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.” (John 11:390) I don’t know that America is yet entirely dead, spiritually–but certainly she stinketh.

May He who called the dead man out of his grave call us.
