The Gospel of John 41 Lord they told Him come and see. 35 Jesus shed tears. 36 So the Jews said See how He loved him 37 But some of them said Couldnt He who opened the blind mans eyes have also kept this man from dying Jesus Raises Lazarus from the Dead 38 Then Jesus groaning in Himself again came to the tomb. Now it was a cave and a stone was lying against it. 39 Take away the stone Jesus said. Martha the dead mans sister told Him Lord by now there is a stench because hes been in the tomb four days. 40 Jesus said to her Didnt I tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God 41 So they took away the stone from where the dead man was lying. Then Jesus raised His eyes and said Father I thank You that You heard Me. 42 Yet I know that You always hear Me but for the sake of the crowd standing around I said this so that they may believe that You sent Me. 43 And after saying these things He shouted with a loud voice Lazarus come out 44 So the dead man came out bound hand and foot with linen strips and his face wrapped with a handkerchief. Jesus said to them Loose him and let him go. The Plot to Kill Jesus 45 Therefore many of the Jews who came to Mary and saw the things Jesus did believed in Him. 46 But some of them went off to the Pharisees and told them the things Jesus did. 47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees convened the Sanhedrin and said What are we going to do For this man performs many miracu- lous signs. 48 If we let Him alone like this everybody will believe in Him Then the Romans will come and blot out both our Place and our Nation.
