When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him. Mary stayed at home.
Martha told Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.
But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask him."
Jesus told Martha, "Your brother will come back to life."
Martha answered Jesus, "I know that he'll come back to life on the last day, when everyone will come back to life."
Jesus said to her, "I am the one who brings people back to life, and I am life itself. Those who believe in me will live even if they die.
Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe that?"
Martha said to him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who was expected to come into the world."
After Martha had said this, she went back home and whispered to her sister Mary, "The teacher is here, and he is calling for you."
When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to Jesus.
(Jesus had not yet come into the village but was still where Martha had met him.)
