Waypoints, Week Seven: The Resurrection of Faith
John chapter 11 contains another of Jesus’ miracles. Jesus is told that his friend Lazarus is sick. We’re told that Jesus loves Lazarus very much. However, instead of immediately going to him and healing him or healing him from afar (which he’s done before), Jesus stays where he is two days. Then he decides to go to him. He knows that Lazarus is already dead, but he tells his disciples that he is going to do something that will strengthen their faith. The disciples are confused but go with him.
