I Am the Resurrection and the Life

17 Now when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb (A)four days. 18 Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles[a] off, 19 and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary (B)to console them concerning their brother. 20 (C)So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary remained seated in the house. 21 Martha said to (D)Jesus, “Lord, (E)if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, (F)God will give you.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 (G)Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in (H)the resurrection on the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, (I)“I am the resurrection and (J)the life.[b] Whoever believes in me, (K)though he die, (L)yet shall he live, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me (M)shall never die. Do you believe this?”
