In John chapter 11 of the Bible, the story of Lazarus unfolds. Lazarus, a dear friend of Jesus, falls gravely ill in the town of Bethany. His sisters, Mary and Martha, send word to Jesus, pleading for him to come and heal their brother. Upon receiving the message, Jesus deliberately delays his journey, stating that Lazarus' illness will not end in death, but will be for the glory of God.

By the time Jesus arrives in Bethany, Lazarus has already been dead for four days. Martha goes out to meet Jesus and expresses her faith, saying that she believes in the resurrection on the last day. Jesus assures her, saying, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die."

Jesus is deeply moved by the sorrow of Mary, Martha, and the people mourning Lazarus' death. He asks to be taken to the tomb, where a stone covers the entrance. Jesus instructs them to remove the stone, and despite Martha's concern about the smell, they do as he says.

Jesus then prays to God, thanking Him for hearing Him and knowing that He always does. With a loud voice, Jesus calls out, "Lazarus, come out!" To everyone's astonishment, Lazarus emerges from the tomb, still wrapped in burial clothes. Jesus commands them to untie him and let him go.

This incredible miracle of raising Lazarus from the dead causes many who witnessed it to believe in Jesus. However, it also leads the religious leaders to plot Jesus' arrest and crucifixion, as his popularity and power become a threat to their authority.

The story of Lazarus in John 11 serves as a powerful demonstration of Jesus' power over death and his ability to bring forth life. It highlights his deep love for his friends and reveals his identity as the resurrection and the life.

Short and powerful
Review by Laura
This book tells the story about the death of Lazarus from John 11. The story is told in a way that captures even the youngest readers attention. At the end of the story it has a short present time application to show how Jesus has power over death and that the lesson presented in the story still applies today. At the very end there is a short glossary to help kids fully understand what was read. We are truly enjoying this series of books!
Story of John 11
Review by Becky V.
A simple, yet powerful book. Jesus Raises tells the story of John 11 where Jesus raised Lazarus from the grave. I really love how simple this new series is, but how focused it is on biblical truth and pointing your children to Jesus. The focus of this book is how Jesus has come to rescue those who trust in him from death, and that he is much more powerful than death.

The way in which it is written, my children can recall the story and understand how it points to Jesus. And that is a gift. I look forward to adding more of this series to our bookshelf.
Beautiful Children’s Book
Review by Kathleen C
Beautfiul book with an important message. This is the retelling of Jesus raising Lazarus as told in John Chapter 11.
It includes: information about the author in the Bible-John, special words with definitions and a scripture verse.
The wording and pictures are very engaging for young children.
The best part of this book is the profound message: Jesus is more powerful than death!
I highly recommend this book for your home library.
Powerful message in a great little book!
Review by JoyfulMommy
A wonderful little book with a powerful message, at a reading level easy for my third grader to read to her younger siblings, and easy for them to follow and understand. I appreciate the way the author of this series tells a Bible story and then makes direct application with it. This volume uses the story of Jesus raising Lazarus to illustrate that Jesus shares in our joys and griefs - even heartbreak - but that He is also God, and more powerful than death. He IS the Resurrection and the Life and whoever believes in Him will have eternal life! The “about the author” page is neat as it tells a little bit about John and how you can read his other true stories about Jesus in the Gospel of John in the Bible. Great addition to your library!
Perfect reader about Lazarus
Review by Sara
This reader is about the story about Lazarus being raised to life and ultimately about how Jesus is more powerful than death. These little Jesus readers tackle really difficult events for little minds to comprehend.I love the approach that each book takes and they have my children captivated by each new lesson about Jesus. Although they have heard these stories plenty of times, I think the way these stories are written, really help my children understand the story better. I highly recommend these! I plan on buying the sets for my friends with families for Christmas!
Love It
Review by Ashley
This is a children's book that is based on John chapter 2 in the bible. With incredible pictures and based on a true story. The story is about how Jesus brought Lazarus back to life. I loves these little books and so does my daughter. Being able to pick a book up and read it to me is such a joy to her and me.
Story of Lazarus
Review by Lacee
Jesus Raises tells the story about Jesus raising Lazarus from the grave in John 11. Jesus was away when Lazarus was sick and died. His sisters sent word to Jesus but he was too late. Jesus wept with the sisters and then raised Lazarus from his tomb, telling them that He is the one that rescues those from the dead. This is a simple retelling for young children. A great addition to your library or to give as a gift.
