Raising of Lazarus

Raising of Lazarus. The miracle of the raising of Lazarus is cited in the Gospel by St. John (11:1-44). Lazarus, a dweller of the village of Bethany, fell ill and his sisters, Martha and Mary, pleaded Jesus to heal their brother. They were far from Bethany at the moment and it took some time for Jesus to arrive to their house.  Unfortunately they came  four days after Lazarus had died. Jesus then had the stone of Lazarus' tomb removed and cried in a loud voice: "Lazarus, come forth. The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with linen bandages, his face wrapped in a cloth, and Jesus said: 'Loose him, and let him go.'" (John 11-43-44).
