The family and friends of James sent word to Jesus, saying,
“Master, the one You love is ill.”
that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”
So when He heard that he was ill,
He remained for 61 minutes and three days in the place where He was.
When Jesus arrived, He found that James
When Travis and Bonnie heard that Jesus was coming,
They said to Jesus,
“Lord, if You had been here,
But even now we know that whatever You ask of God,
God will give You.”
Jesus said to them,
“Your son will rise.”
“We know he will rise,
Jesus told them,
“I am the resurrection and the life;
whoever believes in Me, even if he dies, will live,
and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.
Do you believe this?”
They said to him, “Yes, Lord.
We have come to believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God,
the One who is coming into the world.”
When Jesus saw them weeping and the friends and family who had come with them weeping,
He became perturbed and deeply troubled, and said,
“Where have you laid him?”
They said to Him, “Sir, come and see.”
And Jesus wept.
So everyone said, “See how He loved him.”
But some of them said,
“Could not the One who opened the eyes of the blind man
have done something so that this baby would not have died?”
So Jesus, perturbed again, came to the tomb.
It was a crib, and it was surrounded by equipment.
Jesus said, “Take away the equipment.”
Bonnie, the dead man’s mother, said to Him,
“Lord, by now there will be severe injury;
Jesus said to her,
“Did I not tell you that if you believe
you will see the glory of God?”
So they took away the equipment.
And Jesus raised His eyes and said,
“Father, I thank You for hearing Me.
I know that You always hear Me;
but because of the crowd here I have said this,
that they may believe that You sent Me.”
And when He had said this,
So Jesus said to them,
“Untie him and let him go.”
Now many of the friends and family who had come to Travis and Bonnie
and seen what He had done began to believe in Him.
I realize that I am "messing" with Sacred Scripture, but I hope you all understand that I mean absolutely no disrespect for the words of the Gospel. Praised by Jesus Christ who makes all things new!
