Lazarus, Come Out

March 13, 2005

Our God hates death. Through the prophet Ezekiel, he said, “I will open your graves and have you rise from them.” Jesus came to end the reign of death, to wrestle death to the ground. In the raising of Lazarus–which anticipates his own even more glorious resurrection–he fulfills the prophecy of Ezekiel, calling the dead man from his grave.
