When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him, while Mary remained in the house.
Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother wouldn't have died.
Even now I know that whatever you ask God, God will give you."
Jesus told her, "Your brother will rise again."
Martha replied, "I know that he will rise in the resurrection on the last day."
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me will live, even though they die.26Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
She replied, "Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, God's Son, the one who is coming into the world."
After she said this, she went and spoke privately to her sister Mary, "The teacher is here and he's calling for you."
When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to Jesus.
He hadn't entered the village but was still in the place where Martha had met him.
