Psalms: 138, 146

Meditation

John: It cannot have been a surprise to Jesus that once He got to Bethany that Lazarus had been dead for four days. (He actually mentioned it to His disciples.) After all, Jesus was on the east side of the Jordan in, very likely a place called Perea. As we see, when Jesus learned of Lazarus’ illness, He tarried in Perea yet another 2 days. It is likely Jesus and His disciples were 15-20 miles away, and remember, their mode of travel was by foot. So, the 4-day span meant the Lazarus was undeniably dead. No question of that.
