Jesus, the Tomb Raider


Today an interesting thought crossed my mind. In reading the story of Lazarus we find Jesus, the man, speaking out into the ether of the next world and bekoning – actually commanding – Lazarus to come back. He’s communicating with Lazarus who is dead and has been for three days. Jesus always seems to go against what He is “supposed” to do. Likewise, He continues to call us to do things that seem to others to be different than what we are “supposed” to do.

Later, Jesus begins a dialogue with His disciples about His coming death. Another thought is that Jesus prepared His disciples for the topic of death by allowing Lazarus to die in the first place. Sometimes the things we think are way outside the scope of God’s will for us could be right smack dab in the middle of his plan.
