The raising of Lazar is one of the great miracles performed by Jesus. It also
was the occasion when Jesus gave one of his "I am" statements as well as the
occasion of Martha's faith statement. This miracle also hastened the resolve of
Jewish temple authorities to kill Jesus

III. Articles On The Temptation of Christ
Forty Days: Reflection on the Temptation of Jesus Christ
In today's epic Gospel scene, Jesus relives in His flesh the history of Israel.
The Temptation of Jesus Is Not about Your Battle with Sin
What we are witnessing here has little to do with us except as it involves
Jesus' willingness to take on the burden of humanity to save us. What we are
beholding is our Lord - the second Adam - obeying where the first Adam
failed to obey (Romans 5:17). ...
The Temptation of Jesus Christ
But among all of the places in the Bible that teach us about temptation,
there is one that stands out from all of the rest. The story of the
temptation of Jesus Christ not only provides us with incredible look into
the way the devil uses temptation to destroy people, but it also provides us
with a model for how we can overcome the temptations that we face as we go
through life. ...
IV. Articles On The Raising of Lazarus
Death Is Not the End!
Jesus was saying to His grieving friend, "Martha, listen to Me. Death is not
the end! You're acting as though it is over with. It is not over with." And
at this point, I think He was speaking of something greater and more
profound than the resurrection of Lazarus, which He would accomplish within
that very hour. ...
The Resurrection of Lazarus (Part 1)
This resurrection is the most extraordinary of all His great works while in
the flesh. It foreshadowed His own resurrection, made a profound impression
in Jerusalem, and in contrast, brought the wrath of the Sanhedrin to a head,
stirring them to decide to murder Jesus. ...
The Resurrection of Lazarus (Part 2)
Christ's conduct just prior to raising Lazarus from the dead is instructive
and inspiring: "When Jesus saw [Mary] weeping, and the Jews who came with
her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled" (John 11:33). ...
When You're Stuck in the Middle
Plant your feet firmly on the promises of Christ, dear friend. Because life
on this side of Heaven is just the scene before the miracle. And if we believe
in Jesus, we already know there's a happy ending. ...
