Jesus knew Lazarus was sick and yet waited until he died so that by raising Lazarus, Jesus could bring glory to God. When he arrived in Bethany, Martha met him. She showed her faith by declaring that she believed in Jesus and that she knew he could do anything, including raising her brother. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, showing that he had already conquered death. Through faith in Jesus, we too will live because he is the resurrection and the life.
