Summary: 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
