John 11:25, “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.” Jesus stated the truth, carried out the truth and lived the truth. First Jesus speak clearly and precisely the resurrection truth. When Jesus comes, we find that Martha is weeping, because her brother Lazarus died, and she goes to meet Jesus to partially blames Jesus for her brother’s death “… Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died” (John 11:21). Jesus response by telling her “…Thy brother shall rise again” (John 11:23). Martha questions Jesus truth of the resurrection, or one could say, half believes the truth. Then Jesus emphatically states “…I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”(John 11:25). Second we notice Jesus carries out the truth for all those who believe Him After more discsuion Jesus tells them to take away the stone from the grave and says “Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me … Lazarus, come forth” (John 11:41-43). Then Lazarus came forth from the grave (John 11:44). We should also note, not only did Jesus state He is the resurrection, and carried out the resurrection, but Jesus Christ lives the resurrection. Jesus is “the resurrection and the life” as Jesus “… was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1Co 15:4). Anyone who “… heareth my (Christ’s) word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life” (John 5:24). Why continue to walk among the walking dead, when you can walk with the one who is “the resurrection and life” now, and for eternity. Have a blessed Resurrection Day!
