The International Sunday School Lesson Outline

January 31 Lesson 9 THE DEATH OF A FRIEND
DEVOTIONAL READING: Isaiah 25:6–10 BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE: John 11:1–44

JOHN 11:38–44
38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.
40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesuslifted uphis eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

The International Sunday School Lesson

January 31, 2016 Lesson The Death of a FriendJohn 11:38-44Dr. Mark Scott wrote this treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson. Scott teaches preaching and New Testament at Ozark Christian College, Joplin, Missouri, and has held preaching ministries in Missouri, Illinois, and Colorado. This lesson treatment is published in the January 24 issue of The Lookout magazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Mark Scott  Jesus and death cannot coexist. Death has no victory around Jesus (1 Corinthians 15:54, 55). Jesus destroys the one who has the power of death (Hebrews 2:14). Jesus proved this in his earthly ministry. Prior to his own resurrection, Jesus raised three people from the dead: the widow’s boy at Nain (Luke 7:11-17), Jairus’s daughter (Mark 5:21-43), and Lazarus (John 11:1-44). Five reasons made the raising of Lazarus the most famous:1) Its proximity to Jerusalem—the others took place in Galilee. 2) Its nearness in time to Jesus’ own resurrection.
