John 11:1-3



KJV(i) 1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) 3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.


John 11:1-3

New International Version (NIV)



The Death of Lazarus

11 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

1 Jesus was close to this family may have stopped by their house every time that He went to Jerusalem. They may have followed Him along His way to minister from time to time, we see them at their house but we also see them out with Jesus.

2 They knew Jesus could have had healed Lazarus. Mary showed humility and was a servant to Lord Jesus Christ and showed this by washing His feet, it was custom to wash their feet when they went into your home but to do it they way she did showed she was unworthy of Him, we are unworthy of Him but He humbled Himself so we can receive Him.

3 This could have meant Lazarus was the beloved disciples because after this Lazarus was not mentioned again. They wanted Jesus to heal Lazarus but they did not see the true plan of His.
