Come Out

All eyes were fixed on the hole in the side of the hill. Some people were murmuring and whispering. Most stood silent, the words of Jesus still echoing in their minds.

“Lazarus, come out!”

The air was thick with anticipation.

And then he appeared, still wrapped in the burial shroud. Jesus instructed some of those standing near by, “Unwrap him, and let him go!”

Many of the people who had come out with Mary to mourn with her, when they saw Lazarus alive, believed who Jesus was.
