Jesus – the Resurrection and the Life

John 11:1-44

Everything is moving on towards Christ’s death and resurrection.

On His way to the Cross, Jesus performs a mighty miracle – the raising of Lazarus (43-44) – which points unmistakably to an even greater miracle – His own resurrection (Acts 2:24). Accompanying this miracle – the raising of Lazarus – , we have Jesus’ great declaration concerning Himself: ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die’ (25).

His words are immediately followed by the question: ‘Do you believe this?’ (26).

This question is put to each of us.

Jesus waits for the answer of faith: ‘Yes, Lord I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God…’(27).

This is ‘for the glory of God’ – receiving new life from ‘the Son of God…’ (4).
