Mortals' greatest fear is death. Lazarus Lives gives assurance that Jesus has all power over death. This is miraculously shown when the Master travels to meet Lazarus' sisters, Martha and Mary, after Lazarus has lain dead in the tomb for four days. When Jesus comes to Bethany, He mourns Lazarus' death and His friends witness the deep love He has for His friends. Martha and Mary's tears of sorrow are changed instantly to joy when their brother Lazarus' life is restored and they understand the Saviour's promise of eternal life to all who believe in Jesus.
