One of my faves, while I should be doing other things that are more productive

Here is one of my favorite Bible stories, told very creatively. Thanks to Hannah for pointing out the website!

John 11:1-3
Mary and Martha, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, sent word to Jesus, 'Lord, the one you love is sick.'

John 11:4
When Jesus heard this, he said, 'This sickness will not end in death.'

John 11:5
Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. Yet when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days.

John 11:7, 14
Then he said to his disciples, 'Let's go back to Judea. Lazarus is dead.'

John 11:17, 20-21
When Jesus arrived, Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. Martha came out to meet him and said, 'Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died!'

John 11:28, 32
Martha went and called her sister, and when Mary came to where Jesus was, she fell at his feet and said, 'Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died!'

John 11:33, 35
When Jesus saw Mary weeping and the weeping of the Jews who had come with her, he was deeply troubled and distressed. Jesus wept.

John 11:36-37
Some of the Jews said, 'Couldn't he have done something to keep Lazarus from dying?'

John 11:38-39
Jesus came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 'Take away the stone,' he said.

John 11:39
Martha, the sister of the dead man, said 'Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been there four days.'

John 11:40-43
They took away the stone and Jesus called in a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come out!'

John 11:44
The dead man came out bound hand and foot with linen strips and with his face wrapped in a cloth.

John 11:44
Jesus said to them, 'Unwrap him and let him go.'
