That tremendous event, the raising of Lazarus from the dead, when Jesus commanded him, "Come forth," is recorded in the eleventh chapter of John's Gospel. A study of this chapter reveals that although he was aware of the serious condition of his friend, Jesus evidently waited deliberately until Lazarus had died before going into Judea to the place where Lazarus and his sisters were living.
