Then Jesus, again greatly disturbed, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone was lying against it. Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, "Lord, already there is a stench because he has been dead four days." Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" So they took away the stone. And Jesus looked upward and said, "Father, I thank you for having heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I have said this for the sake of the crowd standing here, so that they may believe that you sent me." When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with strips of cloth, and his face wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Unbind him, and let him go." - John 11:32-44
Lost to the earth four days, the rotting stench, suddenly the dead man
Aroused by holy, invigorating Spirit, but no B-movie
Zombie walking the earth for unspeakable hunger,
Against the pull of entropy, a sea voyage from hope, against all
Reason and wild expectations, this one shows the glory
Under the compulsion of compassion and friendship-love
See grief tears dripping from Jesus’ face become a baptism from death to life.
