Tell Me One More Time, Who is He? 

WESLEYAN BIBLE STUDY WITH

DR. THOMAS Q. ROBBINS

JUNE 2, 2024

 

The Raising of Lazarus from the dead is a familiar biblical account to all of us. Our teacher, Doctor Thomas Q Robbins, believes this biblical account is one of the most important passages in the New Testament. We've recently spent time studying what happened after Lazarus was raised from the dead, and the influence he had on his community. Thomas Q now wants to spend time with a flashback that details the story of what happened prior to Lazarus being raised from the grave, and what was happening during this crisis in the lives of Lazarus, Mary, and Martha.

Thomas Q gives us a clear recounting of the time, place, and event Jesus had made the religious leaders furious in Jerusalem when he identified himself with God to the point where they tried to kill him by stoning, but he escaped. After this experience in Jerusalem, Jesus hears news that Lazarus is sick unto death, but delays going to Mary and Martha's home until Lazarus has died.

Only by delaying in this way could Jesus clearly illustrate that he is the resurrection and the life. To be sure, the crux of this event is the calling of Lazarus from the dead. We're all very familiar with that account. But what proceeded Lazarus coming to life again is also important for two reasons. And Doctor Robbins will deal with those and hopefully give us a fresh understanding of this passage of Scripture.

Something To Consider

We’ve all had our share of failing to accomplish something that we set out to do.  But, failing in this way isn’t the same thing as failure!   Failure occurs when we give up and no longer think that we can succeed.  So remember, success comes in “cans”  --  failure comes in “can’ts!"  The truth is, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  (Philippians 4:13)    -Thomas Q.
