The Acts of the Apostles    11: 1-8

11:1 Now there was a certain sick man, Lazarus of Bethania, from the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
11:2 And Mary was the one who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair; her brother Lazarus was sick.
11:3 Therefore, his sisters sent to him, saying: “Lord, behold, he whom you love is sick.”
11:4 Then, upon hearing this, Jesus said to them: “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by it.”
11:5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister Mary, and Lazarus.
11:6 Even so, after he heard that he was sick, he then still remained in the same place for two days.
11:7 Then, after these things, he said to his disciples, “Let us go into Judea again.”
11:8 The disciples said to him: “Rabbi, the Jews are even now seeking to stone you. And would you go there again?”
