Jesus Performed Resurrections

“You don’t have to wait for the End. I am, right now, Resurrection and Life. The one who believes in me, even though he or she dies, will live. And everyone who lives believing in me does not ultimately die at all. Do you believe this?”

(John 11:25-26)

Very rarely will you see me at funerals. I’m not sure why that is. At first, I thought there was something wrong with me, but then was reminded of the fact that Jesus Himself couldn’t stand death either. Have you noticed how every funeral He attended, He brought the dead to life? Jairus’ daughter, the widow’s son and Lazarus. I came across an interesting post that confirmed this view. It said, “Jesus didn’t conduct funerals at all. He only performed resurrections. Not one person died in his presence. He came upon those who were already dead and resurrected them and gave them new life.” It is He who promises us that if we believe in Him, we too will live again.
