Psalms: 87, 96


John: “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” (v. 44) I think this was intended as an object lesson for those gathered about. This was Jesus’ greatest sign save one: His own resurrection. Jesus may have been showing that He had power of death and compelled death to “let him go”. This was a great event. Alas, Lazarus would die physically again one day, but these people all saw that Jesus actually has power over death, the last enemy to be defeated.

Gospel: John 11:30-44

New Testament: Acts 15:12-21

Old Testament: Job 29:1; 31:24-40
