Jn (NKJV) 11:11 These things He said, and after that He said to them, "Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up." 11:12 Then His disciples said, "Lord, if he sleeps he will get well." 11:13 However, Jesus spoke of his death, but they thought that He was speaking about taking rest in sleep. 11:14 Then Jesus said to them PLAINLY, "Lazarus is dead. 11:15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, that you may believe. Nevertheless let us go to him."
