“Do You Believe This?” John 11:17-27

The Spoken Word Christian Church https://thespokenwordchurch.com

One of the most important questions ever asked in the Bible is found in John 11:26.  Jesus, when talking with his friend Martha, tells her that He is the resurrection and the life and whoever believes in Him will live even though they die.  Then He asked Martha: Do you believe this?  Listen today as Pastor Bob addresses this all-important question as he continues his study through the Gospel of John.

Our Bible text for Today’s Message is from John 11:17-27

Jesus Comforts the Sisters of Lazarus

17 On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. 18 Now Bethany was less than two miles[a] from Jerusalem, 19 and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home.
21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”
23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”
24 Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
