The Fifth Sunday in Lent

Jesus and LazarusIn today's gospel Jesus reveals his power over death by raising Lazarus from the dead. The prophet Ezekiel prophesies God breathing new life into dry bones. To those in exile or living in the shadows of death, these stories proclaim God's promise of resurrection. In baptism we die with Christ that we might also be raised with him to new life. 

Ezekiel 37:1-14
    The dry bones of Israel brought to life
Psalm 130
    With the LORD there is mercy and plenteous  
     redemption. (Ps. 130:6-7)
Romans 8:6-11
    Life in the Spirit
John 11:1-45
    Baptismal image: the raising of Lazarus
