Jesus said to her, I am the one who can brings people back to life.

A man named Lazarus was sick. He lived in Bethany with his sisters, Mary and Martha. It was Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was ill. So the two sisters sent a message to Jesus telling him, "Lord, your dear friend is very sick." But when Jesus heard it he said, “This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. but So, when he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. Then, after the two days, Jesus said to his disciples, "Let's go back to Judea." His disciples were saying to him, “Our Rabbi, the Judeans had been just now seeking to stone you, and are you going there again?” Jesus replied, "There are twelve hours of daylight every day. During the day people can walk safely. They can see because they have the light of this world. But at night there is danger of stumbling because they have no light." Then he said, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but now I will go and wake him up." His disciples were saying to him, “Our Lord, if he is sleeping, he is recovering health.” They thought Jesus meant Lazarus was simply sleeping, but Jesus meant Lazarus had died. So he told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead. and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him." then Thomas, who is called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us go also and die with him.”

then when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days. Bethany was only a few miles down the road from Jerusalem, and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home. "Lord," Martha said to Jesus, "if you had been here, my brother would not have died. “But even now I know that as much as you ask God, he gives to you.” Jesus told her, "Your brother will rise again." Martha answered, "I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day." jesus said to her, “I AM THE LIVING GOD, The Resurrection and The Life; whoever trusts in me, even if he dies, he shall live.” Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?" And she said to jesus, “Yes, my Lord, I do believe that you are The Messiah, The Son of God, who has come into the world.” And when she had said these things, she went and called Maryam her sister, secretly, and she said to her, “Our Rabbi has come and has called for you.” And when Maryam heard, she arose quickly and came to jesus. But jesus had not yet come to the village, but he was in that place in which he met Martha. But the Judeans also, who were with her in the house, who were comforting her, seeing Maryam rise quickly and go out, went after her, for they thought she went to the tomb to weep. When Mary arrived and saw Jesus, she fell at his feet and said, "Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died."

When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. And he said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.” Then Jesus wept. And the Judeans were saying, “See how much he loved him!” But some said, "This man healed a blind man. Couldn't he have kept Lazarus from dying?" Jesus was still angry as he arrived at the tomb, a cave with a stone rolled across its entrance. "Roll the stone aside," Jesus told them. But Martha, the dead man's sister, protested, "Lord, he has been dead for four days. The smell will be terrible." Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" So they rolled the stone aside. Then Jesus looked up to heaven and said, "Father, thank you for hearing me. “And I know that you always hear me, but for the sake of this crowd that is standing here I said these things, that they may believe that you have sent me.” Then Jesus shouted, "Lazarus, come out!" And he who had died came out, while his hands and his feet were bound in swathing bands, and his face was bound in a turban. Yeshua said to them, “Unbind him and let him go.”
