John 11 – Message to Martha

You can listen to Max read this here.

Did you catch the audible sigh that Max adds to Thomas’ words….

John 11:16  Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, (Sigh)Let us also go, that we may die with him.

Anyway the story about Lazarus is true and well know. But I like the dialogue with Martha. Sister Mary gets most of the glory for her devotion in other passages, but here we get a real theological doctrinal discuss that Jesus had with Martha. Brings to mind the discussion Jesus had earlier with the woman at the well. These are quite deep though we only get a glimpse of the dialogue, but we see her grasp message.

Joh 11:20  Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

Joh 11:21  Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

Joh 11:22  But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

Joh 11:23  Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

Joh 11:24  Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

Joh 11:25  Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Joh 11:26  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Joh 11:27  She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

Joh 11:39  Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

Joh 11:40  Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
