In (he division' inlo verses in our English Bible, it is the shortest verse or all; yet it is full of expression and significance. The story of how Jesus brought Lazarus forth from the tomb is familiar to us all. It brings to every thmigliUul and inrjnlrjng minil .'onie very poignant questions, wiij did Jesus weep, if He had the power, lo bring. Lazarus rrom Hie dead? Why was Ihe power of Jesus nol exercised hi more homes and circles of sorrow in His own day? There must have been many many cases ol.bprcavrd disclplus' nnd yet the .stories at Jesus bring-' ing the dead- to life arc few. Why is Ihe sainV power; of Jesus not manifest iii'homes of tlealh and sorrow loday, where the devotion to the Master is as intense as It was in that home where Martin and Mary loved Him? l * » '» These questions .we cannot answer, any more than we can explain the miracle.
