Some thoughts: Jesus standing within time at the tomb

Lazarus was a great friend. Jesus had special feelings for him, as any person would have. It was sad to see any person go through the spiritual crushing which a dying person experiences.

Before Jesus resurrected Lazarus, he was in anguish for multiple reasons, one being the sadness/joy which the sisters would feel when their brother would walk from the dark tomb. What sisters would not be sad seeing their brother in swaddling death wrapping. Yet, this is his rebirth, a renewal into a second chance upon earth.

Salvation is of the Lord. Jesus would resurrect Himself after His crucifixion. This he knew standing before Lazarus' tomb. That would be the revelation of the true riches of Israel, the promise of everlasting life revealed. Would people appreciate it, and continue His work as they should? He had prepared them. As a Father sees his children off to school, Jesus was meditating upon the wisdom the apostles would have. Would Lazarus now live wisely, and consider this renewal of life an opportunity to serve Jesus even more actively?

The sight of Lazarus coming from the stone-cold tomb wrapped in tattered rags reminded Jesus of his first appearance as man. He had been with Mary and Joseph in the cave grotto surrounded by domestic creatures in their natural habitat. Smelly, damp, and musky the cave was barren but appreciated by Joseph and Mary. They had appreciated everything in their lives. Now, he too should appreciate all things. Even this sadness of the sisters and their friends should be turned to joy. Jesus appreciated God's wisdom of life and death. Through the reality of one, the other could be seen more vividly. Surely mankind would learn. Surely they would choose to share life.

Why did Jesus equate raising Lazarus from the dead with seeing the glory of God?
Raising Lazarus is a miracle the multitude did not believe would be a possiblity but with the Glory of God Lazarus was raised from the dead after four days in the tomb.

Lazarus` resurrection was ONLY possible through the power and the glory of God. He had been dead for so long and there was a definite stench - there could be no doubt whatsoever this was a miracle of God that Jesus performed.

Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead

Jesus therefore, again groaning in himself, came to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone lay against it. Jesus said, "Take away the stone."
Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to him, "Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days."
Jesus said to her, "Didn't I tell you that if you believed, you would see God's glory?"
So they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, "Father, I thank you that you listened to me. I know that you always listen to me, but because of the multitude that stands around I said this, that they may believe that you sent me." When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!"
He who was dead came out, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth.
Jesus said to them, "Free him, and let him go."
