Pastor Ken Hutcherson 11:32 Now when Mary came to the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said to him,“Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” 11:33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the people 63 who had come with her weeping, he was intensely moved 64 in spirit and greatly distressed. 65 11:34 He asked, 66 “Where have you laid him?” 67 They replied, 68 “Lord, come and see.” 11:35 Jesus wept.69 11:36 Thus the people who had come to mourn 70 said, “Look how much he loved him!” 11:37 But someof them said, “This is the man who caused the blind man to see! 71 Couldn’t he have done something to keepLazarus 72 from dying?” Lazarus Raised from the Dead 11:38 Jesus, intensely moved 73 again, came to the tomb. (Now it was a cave, and a stone was placed acrossit.) 74 11:39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” 75 Martha, the sister of the deceased, 76 replied, “Lord, by this time the body will have a bad smell, 77 because he has been buried 78 four days.” 79 11:40 Jesusresponded, 80 “Didn’t I tell you that if you believe, you would see the glory of God?” 11:41 So they took away81 the stone. Jesus looked upward 82 and said, “Father, I thank you that you have listened to me. 83 11:42 Iknew that you always listen to me, 84 but I said this 85 for the sake of the crowd standing around here, that they may believe that you sent me.” 11:43 When 86 he had said this, he shouted in a loud voice, 87 “Lazarus,come out!” 11:44 The one who had died came out, his feet and hands tied up with strips of cloth, 88 and a cloth wrapped around his face. 89 Jesus said to them, “Unwrap him 90 and let him go.”
Pastor Ken Hutcherson 11:17 When 32 Jesus arrived, 33 he found that Lazarus 34 had been in the tomb four days already. 35 11:18(Now Bethany was less than two miles 36 from Jerusalem, 37 11:19 so many of the Jewish people of the region 38 had come to Martha and Mary to console them 39 over the loss of their brother.) 40 11:20 So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary was sitting in the house. 41 11:21Martha 42 said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 11:22 But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will grant 43 you.” 44 11:23 Jesus replied, 45 “Your brother will come back to life again.” 46 11:24 Martha said, 47 “I know that he will come back to life again 48 in the resurrection at the last day.” 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live 49 even if he dies, 11:26 and the one who livesand believes in me will never die. 50 Do you believe this?” 11:27 She replied, 51 “Yes, Lord, I believe 52 thatyou are the Christ, 53 the Son of God who comes into the world.” 54 11:28 And when she had said this, Martha 55 went and called her sister Mary, saying privately, 56 “The Teacher is here and is asking for you.” 57 11:29 So when Mary 58 heard this, she got up quickly and went tohim. 11:30 (Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still in the place where Martha had come out to meet him.) 11:31 Then the people 59 who were with Mary 60 in the house consoling her saw her 61 get upquickly and go out. They followed her, because they thought she was going to the tomb to weep 62 there.

Pastor Ken Hutcherson 11:6 So when he heard that Lazarus 10 was sick, he remained in the place where he was for twomore days. 11:7 Then after this, he said to his disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.” 11 11:8The disciples replied, 12 “Rabbi, the Jewish leaders 13 were just now trying 14 to stone you to death! Are 15 you going there again?” 11:9 Jesus replied, 16 “Are there not twelve hours in a day? If anyone walks around in the daytime, he does not stumble, 17 because he sees the lightof this world. 18 11:10 But if anyone walks around at night, 19 he stumbles, 20 because the light is not in him.” 11:11 After he said this, he added, 21 “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep. 22 But I am goingthere to awaken him.” 11:12 Then the disciples replied, 23 “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover.” 11:13 (Now Jesus had been talking about 24 his death, but they 25 thought he had been talking about real sleep.) 26 11:14 Then Jesus told them plainly, “Lazarus has died, 11:15 and I am glad 27 for your sakethat I was not there, so that you may believe. 28 But let us go to him.” 11:16 So Thomas (calledDidymus 29 ) 30 said to his fellow disciples, “Let us go too, so that we may die with him.” 31
Pastor Ken Hutcherson 11:1 Now a certain man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village where Mary and her sister Martha lived. 1 11:2 (Now it wasMary who anointed the Lord with perfumed oil 2 and wiped his feet dry with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) 3 11:3 So the sisters senta message 4 to Jesus, 5 “Lord, look, the one you love is sick.” 11:4 When Jesus heard this, he said, “This sickness will not lead to death, 6 but toGod’s glory, 7 so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” 8 11:5 (Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.) 9
Pastor Ken Hutcherson 10:25 Jesus replied, 65 “I told you and you do not believe. The deeds 66 I do in my Father’s name testify aboutme. 10:26 But you refuse to believe because you are not my sheep. 10:27 My sheep listen to my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.10:28 I give 67 them eternal life, and they will never perish; 68 no one will snatch 69 them from my hand.
Pastor Ken Hutcherson 10:11 “I am the good 25 shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life 26 for the sheep. 10:12 The hired hand, 27 who is not a shepherd and does not own sheep, sees the wolf coming and abandons 28 the sheep and runs away. 29 So the wolf attacks 30 the sheep and scatters them.10:13 Because he is a hired hand and is not concerned about the sheep, 31 he runs away. 32
Pastor Ken Hutcherson 10:14 “I am the good shepherd. I 33 know my own 34 and my own know me – 10:15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father – and I lay down my life 35 for 36 the sheep. 10:16 I have 37 other sheep that do not come from 38 this sheepfold. 39 I must bring them too, and they will listen to my voice, 40 so that 41 there will be one flock and 42 one shepherd. 10:17 This is why the Father loves me 43 – because I lay down my life, 44 so that I may take it back again. 10:18 No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down 45 of my own free will. 46 I have the authority 47 to lay it down, and I have the authority 48 to take it back again. This commandment 49 I received from my Father.” 10:19 Another sharp division took place among the Jewish people 50 because of these words. 10:20 Many of them were saying, “He is possessed by a demon and has lost his mind! 51 Why do you listen to him?” 10:21 Others said, “These are not the words 52 of someone possessed by a demon. A demon cannot cause the blind to see, 53 can it?” 54 Jesus at the Feast of Dedication 10:22 Then came the feast of the Dedication 55 in Jerusalem. 56 10:23 It was winter, 57 and Jesus was walking in the temple area 58 inSolomon’s Portico. 59 10:24 The Jewish leaders 60 surrounded him and asked, 61 “How long will you keep us in suspense? 62 If you are the Christ, 63 tell us plainly.” 64

Pastor Mark Webster 2:7 So you who believe see 19 his value, 20 but for those who do not believe, the stone that the builders rejected has become the 21 cornerstone, 22 2:8 and a stumbling-stone 23 and a rock to trip over. 24 They stumble 25 because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. 26 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may proclaim the virtues 27 of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 2:10 You 28 once were not a people, but now you are God’s people. You were shown no mercy, 29 but now you have received mercy. 2:11 Dear friends, I urge you as foreigners and exiles to keep away from fleshly desires that do battle against the soul, 2:12 and maintain good conduct 30 among the non-Christians, 31 so that though 32 they now malign you as wrongdoers, they may seeyour good deeds and glorify God when he appears. 33

Pastor Ken Hutcherson 9:1 Now as Jesus was passing by, 1 he saw a man who had been blind from birth. 9:2 His disciples asked him, 2 “Rabbi, who committed the sinthat caused him to be born blind, this man 3 or his parents?” 4 9:3 Jesus answered, “Neither this man 5 nor his parents sinned, but he was born blind so that 6 the acts 7 of God may be revealed 8 through what happens to him. 9 9:4 We must perform the deeds 10 of the one who sent me11 as long as 12 it is daytime. Night is coming when no one can work. 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” 13 9:6 Having said this, 14 he spat on the ground and made some mud 15 with the saliva. He 16 smeared the mud on the blind man’s 17 eyes 9:7 and said to him, “Go wash in the pool of Siloam” 18 (which is translated “sent”). 19 So the blind man 20 went away and washed, and came back seeing. 9:8 Then the neighbors and the people who had seen him previously 21 as a beggar began saying, 22 “Is this not the man 23 who used to sit andbeg?” 9:9 Some people said, 24 “This is the man!” 25 while others said, “No, but he looks like him.” 26 The man himself 27 kept insisting, “I amthe one!” 28 9:10 So they asked him, 29 “How then were you made to see?” 30 9:11 He replied, 31 “The man called Jesus made mud, 32 smeared it 33 on my eyes and told me, 34 ‘Go to Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed, and was able to see.” 35
