Most of the artwork I’ve seen depicting John 11 only contains a few people witnessing Lazarus’ resurrection. I love this particular one by artist John August Swanson. I am drawn in by the magnificent color. I feel almost invited to picture myself as one of the many. The Bible recounts in John 11:45 that –
“…many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, believed in Him.”
M A N Y.
Many believed because of what they had witnessed, what they had seen with their own eyes. This truly was an extraordinary day in the lives of those m a n y!
Oh, Father, may those witnessing our lives see Your active hands …and believe.
