John 11:1-53 – Lent 5 (A)

In this episode of Preaching the Text, John Hoyum and Steve Paulson examine the story of the raising of Lazarus.

In this episode of Preaching the Text, John Hoyum and Steve Paulson examine the story of the raising of Lazarus. A particular mystery of this text is that Jesus waits for Lazarus to die even though he's heard of his sickness. We find that Jesus intends to perform a bigger miracle: to give life to the dead with the power of his word. This word belongs in the pulpit, where preachers give the promise of the resurrection itself.
