of Mary and Lazarus.
Jesus raised Martha's
Martha lived in Bethany
and was a friend of Jesus. Martha welcomed Jesus to their home but complained
that her sister Mary was not helping her to
prepare a meal. Jesus rebuked Martha and commended Mary for choosing "the
better portion." On another occasion Martha appealed to Jesus
for help when her brother Lazarus had died, and Jesus responded by telling
her: "I am the resurrection and the life."
