Bible: John 11:39-45

11:39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” 1  Martha, the sister of the deceased, 2  replied, “Lord, by this time the body will have a bad smell, 3  because he has been buried 4  four days.” 5  11:40 Jesus responded, 6 Didn’t I tell you that if you believe, you would see the glory of God? 11:41 So they took away 7  the stone. Jesus looked upward 8  and said, “Father, I thank you that you have listened to me. 9  11:42 I knew that you always listen to me, 10  but I said this 11  for the sake of the crowd standing around here, that they may believe that you sent me.” 11:43 When 12  he had said this, he shouted in a loud voice, 13 Lazarus, come out! 11:44 The one who had died came out, his feet and hands tied up with strips of cloth, 14  and a cloth wrapped around his face. 15  Jesus said to them, “Unwrap him 16  and let him go.”

The Response of the Jewish Leaders

11:45 Then many of the people, 17  who had come with Mary and had seen the things Jesus 18  did, believed in him.
