Jesus Raises the Son of the Widow of Nain

11 Now it happened, the day after, that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and a large crowd. 12 And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her. 13 When the Lord saw her, He had (A)compassion on her and said to her, (B)“Do not weep.” 14 Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, (C)arise.” 15 So he who was dead (D)sat up and began to speak. And He (E)presented him to his mother.

16 (F)Then fear [a]came upon all, and they (G)glorified God, saying, (H)“A great prophet has risen up among us”; and, (I)“God has visited His people.” 17 And this report about Him went throughout all Judea and all the surrounding region.

John the Baptist Sends Messengers to Jesus(J)

18 (K)Then the disciples of John reported to him concerning all these things. 19 And John, calling two of his disciples to him, sent them to [b]Jesus, saying, “Are You (L)the Coming One, or [c]do we look for another?”

20 When the men had come to Him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, ‘Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?’ ” 21 And that very hour He cured many of [d]infirmities, afflictions, and evil spirits; and to many blind He gave sight.

22 (M)Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: (N)that the blind (O)see, the lame (P)walk, the lepers are (Q)cleansed, the deaf (R)hear, the dead are raised, (S)the poor have the gospel preached to them. 23 And blessed is he who is not [e]offended because of Me.”
