17 So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in the tomb four days. 18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about 1 two miles away. 19 And many of the Jews had joined the women around Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. 20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him, but Mary was sitting in the house. 21 Now Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 "But even now I know that j whatever You ask of God, God will give You." 23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." 24 Martha said to Him, k "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day." 25 Jesus said to her, "I am l the resurrection and the life. m He who believes in Me, though he may n die, he shall live. 26 "And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" 27 She said to Him, "Yes, Lord, o I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world."New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
