Jesus' Conversation with Martha & Mary

Thursday July 12, 2018

When Jesus arrived in Bethany, He discovered that Lazarus had died and was buried four days ago.  Earlier in this chapter the disciples had expressed great concern about returning to the greater Jerusalem area because of the Jews attempted execution of Jesus, by stoning. The family at Bethany must have been well known in Jerusalem, with connections within  the Jewish hierarchy, since many “Jews” came to comfort Martha and Mary over the loss of Lazarus.
