Episode Info:

If giving sight to a man born blind was not convincing enough proof that Jesus was far more than just an ordinary man, but the prophesied Messiah, then would raising a man who had been dead in the grave for 4 days be convincing? Is Jesus truly the Resurrection and the Life as he claimed to be? Would this miracle and sign open the eyes of the spiritually blind? And how exactly does God respond to our brokenness, to our struggles, to our weaknesses? What does he do when we question him like both Martha and Mary did, "Lord, if you had been here, this would not have happened!". What does he do when we are in pain, hurting, even when we lash out at him in confusion or anger? The answer is Jesus has compassion. Jesus has empathy. As it says so succinctly in John 11:35, "Jesus wept". This is ultimately why Jesus came to save, rescue and redeem. He didn't come to hand-out band-aids and Advil, temporary relief from the repercussions of sin and death. He came to provide us permanent relief from the everlasting repercussions of sin and death. He came to bring salvation. He came to deliver us into God's kingdom, where there will be no more weeping, no more pain, no more sorrow, no more death.
