John 11:17-27 “Resurrection Comfort”

On Easter Sunday, we learn the best way to both give and receive comfort: the resurrection. In John 11, Jesus comforts and encourages Martha after the death of her brother Lazarus by promising the resurrection. Jesus is the resurrection and the life, and he is available to all.

John 11:17-27

17 Now when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days. 18 Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles off, 19 and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother.20 So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary remained seated in the house. 21 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to him, “Yes, Lord;I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.”
