John 12:10-11 NIV
So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus as well, for on account of him many of the Jews where going over to Jesus and believing in him.
There are people out there who want to condemn you are take you out because Jesus showed you favor and the reason why is because it proves he’s real. It’s not like Lazarus asked Jesus to raise him from the dead. He didn’t ask for that to happen instead Jesus allowed it to happen and because of that the Pharisee’s wanted him dead to eliminate the proof of Jesus power. Lazarus was an innocent bystander. To the Pharisee’s he was at the wrong place at the wrong time but to Jesus he was right were he was supposed to be.
John 12:17-19 NIV
Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word. Many people, because they had heard that he had performed this sign, went out to meet him. So the Pharisees said to one another, “See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!”
They tried to stop the power of Jesus from spreading thinking they had control failing to realize that you can’t stop something you don’t control and 2000 years later his power and name still remains and continue to draw new believers to his family!!!
