Brothers & Sisters

Jesus's True Family

Matthew 12 Mark 3 Luke 8
[46] While he was speaking to the crowd, behold his mother and brothers had stood out seeking to speak to him.
[47] And someone said to him: Behold your mother and brothers have stood out seeking to speak to you.
[48] But answering he said to him saying to him: Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?
[49] And having stretched out his hand over his disciples he said: Behold my mother and my brothers.
[50] For whoever does the will of my father in the heavens, he himself is my brother and my sister and my mother.
[31] And his mother and his brothers come and standing outside they sent to him calling him.
[32] and the crowd was sitting near him, and they say to him: Behold outside your mother and your brothers and your sisters seek you.
[33] And answering them he says: Who is my mother and my brothers?
[34] And having looked around at those sitting near him round [about] he says: Behold my mother and my brothers.
[35] Whoever does the will of God, this is my brother and my sister and my mother.
[19] Now his mother and brothers came to him, and were unable to meet him because of the crowd.
[20] So it was reported to him, Your mother and your brothers stand outside wishing to see you.
[21] But answering he said to them: My mother and my brothers are those hearing and doing the word of God.

Reconcile With Your Brother
Matthew 5
[21] You heard that it was said to the ancients: You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be liable for judgment.
[22] But I say to you that everyone [being] angry with his brother will be liable for judgment. And Whoever says to his brother: Raka, he will be liable to the council, and whoever says: [You] stupid, he will be liable to the Gehenna fire.
[23] If therefore you bring your gift to the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you,
[24] leave your gift there before the altar, and be going first [and] be reconciled to your brother, and then having come, be bringing your gift.
[25] Be being kind to your opponent swiftly while you are with him in the road, lest your opponent deliver you up to the judge and judge to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.
[26] Truly I say to you, you shall not come out from there until you have yielded your last penny.

Love For Enemies
Matthew 5
[43] You have heard that it was said: You shall agape-love your neighbor, and you shall hate your enemy.
[44] But I say to you, be agape-loving your enemies and be praying for those persecuting you,
[45] in order that you become sons of your father in [the] heavens. For he makes his sun [to] rise upon the wicked and the good, and sends rain upon the just and the unjust.
[46] For if you agape-love those agape-loving you, what reward do you have? Don't the tax-collectors do likewise?
[47] And if you only greet your brothers, what do you do more [than] [anyone] [else]? Don't the nations do likewise?
[48] Therefore be complete as your heavenly father is complete.

Do Not Judge
Matthew 7 Luke 6
[1] Be not judging, that you not be judged.
[2] For with what judgment you judge, you [yourself] will be judged, and with what measure you measure [others], it shall be measured to you.
[3] And why do you see the speck in your brother's eye but do not perceive the log in your own eye?
[4] Or how will you say to your brother: Let me throw the speck out of your eye, and behold the log in your own?
[5]Hypocrite! First throw the log out of your own eye, and then you will see straight to be throwing the speck out of your brother's eye.
[6] Do not give holy [things] to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet1, and having turned, tear you asunder.
[37] And be not judging, and you will not be judged. And be not condemning, and you will not be condemned. Be releasing, and you will be released.
[38] Be giving, and it will be given you, good measure pressed shaken [down] overflowing they will give into your lap. For with what measure you measure it will be measured in return to you.

[39] But he also said to them [a] parable: Is [the] blind [man] able to be leading the blind? Won't both fall into [a] pit? 
[40] [A] disciple is not above the teacher, for all will be completed like his teacher. 
[41] But why do you see the speck in your brother's eye, but the plank in your own eye you do not take notice of? 
[42]How are you able to be saying to your brother: Brother, allow [me], I will cast out the speck in your eye, not seeing the plank in your [own] eye? Hypocrite! Throw out first the plank in your eye, and then you will see clearly to throw out the speck in your brother's eye.

The Rich Man and Lazarus

Luke 16
[19] But a certain man was rich, and he had put on purple garments and fine linen enjoying himself each day splendidly.
[20] But a certain poor [man] by name Lazarus had been cast to his gate being covered with ulcerous sores.
[21] And he was lusting to be filled from that falling from the table of the rich [one]; but even the dogs coming were licking his ulcerous sores.

[22] Now it came to pass the poor [man] died and was gathered by the angels to Abraham's lap; but the rich [man] also died and was buried. 
[23] And in Hades lifting up his eyes, being in torment, he sees Abraham from afar and Lazarus in his lap
[24] and having called out he said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus in order that he dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I suffer torment in this flame. 
[25] But Abraham said: Child, remember that you received your good [things] in your zoe-life, and likewise Lazarus the evil. But now he is encouraged, and you suffer torment. 
[26] And in all those [things] between you [people] and us [a] great chasm is fixed, so that those wishing to go down from here to you be not able, nor from there to us may not cross over. 
[27] But he said: I ask you therefore, Father, in order that you may sent him to my fathers house, 
[28] for I have five brothers, that he may warn them, that they also not come to this place of torment. 
[29] But Abraham says: They have Moses and the prophets, let him hear from them. 
[30] But he said: No, father Abraham, but if someone proceed from [the] dead to them: they would repent. 
[31] But he said to them: If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither would they be persuaded if someone rise from the dead.

Persecution of Disciples

Matthew 10 Mark 13 Luke 21
[16] Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Become therefore shrewd as foxes and as innocent as doves.
[17] But be giving heed of men, for they will deliver you up to the council, and in their synagogues they will flog you,
[18] and before chiefs and kings you will be brought on account of me, as [a] witness to them and to the nations.
[19] Now whenever they deliver you up, do not be concerned about how or what you will speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you will say.
[20] For you are not the [ones] speaking, but the spirit of your father who speaks in you.

[21] For brother will deliver up brother to death and [a] father [his] son, and children will rise up against [their] parents and will cause them to die. 
[22] And you will be hated by all because of my name, but the [one] having born up to the end, this [one] shall be saved. 
[23] But whenever they persecute you in this city, be fleeing to another, for truly I say to you, you will not complete the cities of Israel until the son of man comes.
[24] [A] disciple is not above his teacher nor [a] slave above his Lord. 
[25] [It is] sufficient to [a] disciple that he become as his teacher and the slave as his Lord. If they call the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more those of his household? 

[9] But you be looking to yourselves. For they will deliver you up to the council and you will be beaten in the synagogues and be stood before governors and kings because of me as [a] witness to them.
[10] And to all the nations is it first necessary [that] the gospel be preached.
[11] And whenever they may bring you being delivered up, do not concern yourself beforehand what you will say, but whatever be given to you in that hour, this be speaking; for the [one] speaking is not you but the Holy Spirit.
[12] And brother will deliver up brother to death and father child, and children will rise up against parents and will kill them.
[13] And you will be hated by all because of my name; but the [one] having endured to the end, this [one] will be saved.
[10] Then he was saying to them: Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom,
[11] and there will be great earthquakes and in various places pestilences and famines, and [a] fearful [thing] will be [a] great sign from heaven.
[12] But before these [things] they will lay their hands on you and persecute [you], delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, being brought before kings and governors on account of my name.
[13] It will prove to be to [a] witness for you.
[14] Place therefore in your hearts not to prepare to defend yourself.
[15] For I will give to you mouth and wisdom, which all those opposing will be unable to resist or to contradict.
[16] But you will be delivered up by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and [some] will be killed among you,
[17] and you will be hated by all because of my name.
[18] And [a] hair on your head they will not destroy.
[19] In your endurance will you acquire your psyche-lives.

The Wealthy Man

Matthew 19 Mark 10 Luke 18
[16] And behold [one] having come to him said: Good teacher, What good [thing] should I do in order that I have eternal zoe-life?
[17] So he said to him: Why do you ask me concerning the good? [Only] one is good. But if you wish to enter into zoe-life, be keeping the commandments.
[18] He says to him: Which? So Jesus said: Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness,
[19] Honor father and mother, and agape-love your neighbor as yourself.
[20] The young man says to him: All these have I kept. What do I yet lack?
[21] Jesus said to him: If you wish to be complete, be going, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven, and Come! Be following me.
[22] But when the young man heard this statement he went away troubled, for he was having many possessions.

[23] But Jesus said to his disciples: Truly I say to you that the rich hardly enter into the kingdom of the heavens. 
[24] But again I say to you it is easier for [a] camel to go through the eye of [a] needle than for [the] rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 
[25] When the disciples heard [this] they were exceedingly amazed saying: Who then is able to be saved? 
[26] But looking at [them] Jesus said to them: With man this is impossible, but with God everything is possible
[27] Then Peter answering said to him: Behold we have forsaken all and have followed you, what then will be to us? 
[28] And Jesus said to him: Truly I say to you that you the [ones] following me, in the renewal, when the son of man sits on the throne of his glory, you yourselves shall also sit upon twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 
[29] And everyone who forsakes houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or land because of my name, will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal zoe-life. 
[30] But many [who are] first will be last and last first. 

[17] And when he went out into the road, [one] having run up and having knelt before him asked him, Good teacher, what should I do in order that I may inherit eternal zoe-life?
[18] But Jesus said to him: Why do you call me good? No one [is] good except one—God.
[19] You know the commandments: Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not bear false witness, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.
[20] But he said to him: Teacher, these [things] have I observed from childhood.
[21] But Jesus having fixed his gaze on him agape-loved him and said to him: One [thing] you lack. Be going, whatever you have sell and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven, and Come! Be following me.
[22] But having been appalled upon this word, he departed being deeply pained, for he was having many possessions.

[23] And having looked [about], Jesus says to his disciples: How difficultly will those having possessions enter into the kingdom of God. 
[24] But his disciples were being amazed at his words. But Jesus again answering says to them: Children, How difficult it is for those trusting upon possessions  to enter into the kingdom of God. 
[25] It is easier for [a] camel to go through the eye of the needle than for the rich to enter into the kingdom of God. 
[26] But they were being exceedingly amazed saying among themselves: And who is able to be saved? 
[27] Having fixed his gaze on them Jesus says: With man [it is] impossible, but not with God, for everything is possible with God. 
[28] Peter began to be saying to him: Behold we have left everything and have followed you. 
[29] Jesus said: Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left houses or brothers or sisters or mothers or fathers or wives or children or fields because of me and because of the good-news, 
[30] who does not receive hundredfold now in this time houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and fields with persecutions, and in the coming age eternal zoe-life. 
[31] But many first will be last, and the last first. 

[18] And one of the rulers asked him saying: Good teacher, what having done will I inherit eternal zoe-life?
[19] But Jesus said to him: Why do you call me good? No one is good except one—God.
[20] You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not falsely witness, be honoring your father and mother.
[21] But he said, All these [things] I have kept since youth.
[22] But Jesus answering said to him: Yet one [thing] you lack. Sell all as much as you have and distribute [it] to the poor, and you will have treasure in the heavens, and Come! Be following me.
[23] But when he heard these [things] he was become deeply pained, for he was greatly rich.
[24] But seeing him Jesus said: How difficultly those having possessions enter into the kingdom of God.
[25] For it is easier for [a] camel to enter through [a] needle hole than [for] the rich to enter into the kingdom of God.
[26] But those who heard said: And who is able to be delivered?
[27] But he said: the [things] impossible with men are possible with God.
[28] But Peter said: Behold having left our own [things] we have followed you.
[29] So he said to them: Truly I say to you that there is no one who left houses or wives or brothers or parents or children because of the kingdom of God
[30] who would not receive much more in this opportune-time and in the eternity in the coming eternal zoe-life.

Forgiving Your Brother
Matthew 18 Luke 17
[15] But if your brother sins, go tell him between you and him only. If he hears you, you have won your brother.
[16] But if he not hear you, take along with you yet one or two, that on [the] mouth of two or three testifiers might stand every word.
[17] But if he not hear them, speak to the assembly. And if he refuse to hear the assembly, he must be to you as the gentile and the tax-gatherer.

[18] Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on the earth will have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on the earth will have been loosed in heaven. 
[19] Again I truly say to you that if two among you be in agreement on the earth concerning any matter that they ask, it will come to pass from my father in [the] heavens. 
[20] For when two or three are gathered in my name, I am there in their midst.
[21] Then Peter having come he said to him: Lord, how often will my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Until seven? 
[22] Jesus says to him: I do not say to you until seven, but until seventy times seven.

[1] But he said to his disciples: It is impossible for stumblings not to come, but woe through whom they come.
[2] It is better for him if [a] millstone is placed around his neck and he is hurled into the sea, than that he stumble one of these little [ones].
[3] Be paying heed to yourselves. If your brother sin, rebuke him, and if he repent, forgive him.
[4] And if seven times during the day he sin against you and seven times he return to you saying: I repent, forgive him.

The Parable of the Unforgiving Slave

Matthew 18
[23] Because of this the kingdom of the heavens is like to [a] man [who is] king, who wished to settle accounts with his slaves.
[24] So when he began to be settling [them], there was brought to him [a] debtor of [a] thousand talents.
[25] And not having [them] to pay, the lord ordered him to be sold and his wife and his children and all that he has for payment.
[26] The slave therefore falling down knelt before him saying: Be patient with me, and I will pay all to you.
[27] And the lord having compassion on this slave loosed him, and allowed him the loan.
[28] So when that slave went out he found one of his fellow-slaves, which owed him [a] hundred denari, and laying hold he was choking him saying: Pay what you owe!
[29] Falling down therefore his fellow-slave knelt before him saying: Be patient with me and I will pay you.
[30] But he did not wish to, but having departed, threw him into prison until he pay the debt.
[31] His fellow-slaves therefore seeing what came to pass were greatly troubled, and having come, reported to their lord all that came to pass.
[32] Then when his lord called him he said to him: Wicked slave, all this debt I allowed you because you called upon me.
[33] Mustn't you also have mercy on your fellow-slave as I also had mercy on you?
[34] And having been angered, his lord gave him over to the torturer until he pay all his debt to him.
[35] Thus also your heavenly father will do to you, if you do not forgive each of your brothers from your heart.

On Seeking Seats of Honor 

Luke 14
[7] But he was saying to those invited [a] parable, noticing how they were choosing the first seats, saying to them:
[8] Whenever you be invited by someone to [a] wedding, do not lay back in the first seat, lest one more honored than you be invited by him,
[9] and coming the [one] having invited you and him will say to you: Give to this [one] the place, and then you begin with disgrace to be occupying the last place.
[10] But whenever you be invited, having proceeded you lay back in the last place, in order that when he come the [one] having invited you will say to you: Friend, move up higher. Then it will be to you glory before all those reclining with you.
[11] For everyone exalting himself will be humbled, and the [one] humbling himself will be exalted.
[12] But he was also saying to the [one] having invited him: Whenever you do [a] lunch or [a] dinner, be not calling your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your rich friends or your brothers or your relatives or your rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and it become recompense to you.
[13] But whenever you would do [a] banquet, be calling poor, crippled, lame, blind,
[14] and you will be blessed, because they do not have to repay you. For it will be repaid to you in the resurrection of the just.

Counting The Cost 
Luke 14
[25] But [a] great crowd was going with him, and turning he said to them:
[26] If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yet even his own psyche-life, is not able to be my disciple.
[27] Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me is not able to be my disciple.
[28] For who among you wishing to build [a] tower does not first having sat reckon the cost, if he has [enough] for completion?
[29] In order that when he having placed [the] foundation and not being able to complete [it] all those beholding begin to be mocking him,
[30] saying that: This man began to be building and was not able to complete [it].
[31] Or what king when he proceeds to another king to engage in battle does not having sat first resolve if he is able in ten thousand to meet the [one] coming upon him with twenty thousand?
[32] But if not, while being afar off having sent [an] ambassador he asks nor for the dung heap is it fit, they throw it out. The [one] having ears to be hearing, let the [terms] for peace.
[33] Likewise therefore everyone among you who does not take leave of all his possessions is not able to be my disciple.
[34] Good therefore [is] the salt. But if the salt become tasteless, with what will it be seasoned?
[35] Neither for [the] ground nor for the dung heap is it fit, they throw it out. The [one] having ears to be hearing, let him be hearing. 

The Parable of the Prodigal Son & His Brother

Luke 15
[11] But I say to you, a certain man was having two sons.
[12] And the younger of them said to the father: Father, give to me the portion of the wealth falling to me. So he divided to them the living.
[13] And after not many days having gathered everything the younger son journeyed to [a] far country, and there he squandered his wealth zoe-living loosely.
[14] So when he spent all [a] severe famine came to pass against that country, and he began to be in need.
[15] And having gone he joined to one of the citizens of that country and he sent him into his fields to be grazing the pigs.
[16] And he was desiring to fill his belly with pods that the pigs were eating, and no one was giving [anything] to him.
[17] But coming to himself he said: How many servants of my father have abundance of bread, but I am perishing here in [a] famine.
[18] Having arisen I will go to my father and will say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you,
[19] no longer am I worthy to be called your son, make me as one [of your] hired-hands.
[20] And having arisen he came to his own father. But while he was being distant afar his father saw him and had compassion, and having run fell upon his neck and kissed him.
[21] But the son said to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you,
[22] But the father said to his slaves: Swiftly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and give [a] ring for his hand and sandals for his feet,
[23] and be bringing the fatted calf, kill [it], and having eaten let us make merry.
[24] For this my son was dead and is alive again, was lost and is found. And he began to be making merry.

[25] Now his elder son was in the field, and as he came he drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dance, 
[26] and calling upon one of the servants he inquired what this might be. 
[27] But he said to him that his brother has arrived, and your father killed the fatted calf, for he had received him back sound. 
[28] But he was enraged and did not want to enter. So his father having come out called upon him. 
[29] But answering he said to the father: Behold so many years I am slaving to you and never transgressed your commandment, and for me you have never given [a] goat that I may make merry with my friends. 
[30] But when this your son who consumed your living with prostitutes came, you killed for him the fatted calf. 
[31] But he said to him: Child, you are always with me, and all mine is yours. 
[32] But it was necessary to make merry and rejoice, for this your brother was dead and has returned to zoe-life, and was lost and is found. 

All Are Brothers With One Father
Matthew 23
[1] Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples
[2] saying: Upon the seat of Moses the scribes and Pharisees sit.
[3] All therefore that they say to you, do and keep, but do not be doing according to their deeds, for they say and do not do.
[4] They bind heavy burdens and place them on the shoulders of men, but they will not move them with their finger.
[5] But all their works they do to be seen by men, for the enlarge their phylacteries and lengthen their hems,
[6] And they philia-love the place of honor in banquets and the first seats in the synagogues
[7] and the salutations in the synagogues and to be called by men Rabbi.
[8] But do not be called Rabbi, for one is your teacher, and all [of] you are brothers.
[9] And do not call [anyone] your father on the earth, for one is your father in the heavens.
[10] neither be called leaders, for your leader is one, the Christ.
[11] But the greater of you will be your servant.
[12] But whoever exalts himself shall be humbled, and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.

Peter Told To Strengthen His Brothers
Luke 22
[31] Simon, Simon, behold Satan has requested to sift you [all] as wheat,
[32] but I have asked concerning you in order that your faith not give out; and you when you have recovered, strengthen your brothers.
[33] But he said to him: Lord, with you am I prepared even to prison and to death to be going.
[34] But he said: I say to you, Peter, The cock will not cry today until thrice you will deny knowing me. 
The Judgment
Matthew 25
[31] But when the son of man comes in his glory and all his angels with him, then will he sit on the throne of his glory.
[32] And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
[33] And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on his left.
[34] Then the king will say to those on his right: Come you blessed of my father, Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
[35] For I hungered and you gave me to eat, I thirsted and you gave me to drink, I was [a] stranger and you gathered me,
[36] naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, in prison and you came to me.
[37] Then the just will answer him saying: Lord, when did we see you hungry and we fed you, or thirsty and we gave you to drink?
[38] And when did we see you [a] stranger and we gathered you, or naked and we fed you?
[39] And when did we see you sick or in prison and we came to you?
[40] And answering the king will say to them: Truly I say to you, inasmuch as you did [it] to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.

The Resurrection
Matthew 28
[1] Now after the Sabbaths, at dawn on the first [day] of the Sabbaths, Mary the Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.
[2] And behold [a] great earthquake came to pass, for [an] angel of the Lord having come down from heaven and having come rolled away the stone and sat on it.
[3] Now his appearance was as lightning, and his clothing white as snow.
[4] But from fear of him those watching were shaken and became as dead.
[5] But answering, the angel said to the women: Be not fearing, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
[6] He is not here, for he arose just as he said. Come see the tomb where he lay.
[7] And quickly having gone, tell his disciples that he arose from the dead, and behold he goes before you to Galilee, there you will see him.
[8] And quickly departing from the grave with fear and great joy they ran to tell his disciples.
[9] And behold Jesus met them saying: Greetings. And having come they laid hold of his feet and knelt before him.
[10] Then Jesus says to them: Be not fearing. Be going, tell my brothers, in order that they go forth to Galilee. There will they see me.

The Death of Lazarus

John 11
[1] Now someone was being sick, Lazarus from Bethany, from the town of Mariam and Martha her sister.
[2] Now it was Mariam the [one] having anointed the Lord with perfume and having wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
[3] So the sisters sent to Jesus saying: Lord, behold, whom you philia-love is sick.
[4] Now Jesus having heard said: This [one] being sick is not to death but for the glory of God, in order that the son of God be glorified through it.
[5] And Jesus agape-loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.

[6] So as he heard that he is sick, then indeed he abided in the place where he was two days. 
[7] Thereupon after this he says to the disciples: Let us go to Judea again
[8] The disciples say to him: Rabbi, now the Jews were seeking to stone you, and you again go back there? 
[9] Jesus answered: Aren't there twelve hours in the day? If anyone walk in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. 
[10] But if he walk in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.
[11] He spoke these [things] and after this he says to them: Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep. But I go in order that I may awaken him. 
[12] So the disciples said to him: Lord, if he is fallen asleep, he will be saved. 
[13] But Jesus had spoken concerning his death. But those [ones] supposed that he speaks concerning the sleep of slumber. 
[14] So then Jesus said to them bluntly: Lazarus has died, 
[15] and I rejoice for [of you], in order that you believe, because I was not there; but let us go to him. 
[16] So Thomas the [one] being called Didimus said to the fellow-disciples: Let us also go in order that we may die with him.
[17] So, coming, Jesus found him already having four days in the tomb. 
[18] Now Bethany was near Jerusalem from [about] fifteen stadions. 
[19] Now many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mariam, in order that they console them concerning [their] brother. 
[20] So Martha, as she heard that Jesus comes, met him; but Mariam was sitting in the house. 
[21] So Martha said to Jesus: Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 
[22] And now I know that as much as you ask God, God will give to you. 
[23] Jesus says to her: Your brother will be resurrected. 
[24] Martha says to him: I know that he will be resurrected in the resurrection in the last day. 
[25] Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the zoe-life. The [one] believing in me even if he die he will zoee-live, 
[26] and everyone zoe-living and believing in me will not die to eternity. Do you believe this? 
[27] She says to him: Yes Lord, I have believed that you are the Christ, the son of God, the [one] coming into the world.
[28] And having said this she departed and called Mariam her sister saying privately: The teacher is present and calls you. 
[29] Now as that [one] heard, she rose swiftly and was going to him. 
[30] For Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was still in the place where Martha met him. 
[31] So the Jews being with her in the house and consoling her, having seen that Mariam swiftly arose and went out, followed her having supposed that she departs to the tomb in order that she may weep there. 
[32] So Mariam, as she came where Jesus was, having seen him, she fell before him at his feet, saying to him: Lord, if you were here, my brother would not have died.
[33] So Jesus, as he saw her weeping, and the Jews having come with her weeping, he was deeply moved in [his] spirit and troubled himself, 
[34] and said: Where have you placed him? They say to him, Lord, be coming and behold. 
[35 Jesus wept. 
[36] So the Jews were saying: Behold how he was philia-loving him. 
[37] But some of them said: Wasn't this [one] having opened the eyes of the blind able to do also in order that this [one] not die?

[38] So Jesus, again being deeply moved in himself, comes to the tomb. Now it was [a] cave, and [a] stone was lying upon it.
[39] Jesus says: Remove the stone. Martha the sister of the [one] having died says to him: Lord, he stinks already, for it is the fourth [day].
[40] Jesus says to her: Did I not say to you that: If you believe, you will see the glory of God?
[41] So they removed the stone. Now Jesus lifted up his eyes and said: Father, I thank you that you heard me.
[42] For I have known that you always hear me, but because of the crowd standing around I spoke, in order that they believe that you have sent me.
[43] And having said these [things] he cried out with [a] great voice: Lazarus! Come out!
[44] And the [one] having been dead came out, his feet and hands having been bound with bandages, and his face was bound with [a] handkerchief. Jesus says to them, Loose him and let him be going.

Jesus's Appearance to Mary Magdalene

John 20
[10] The disciples there again departed to them.
[11] Now Maria stood outside facing the tomb weeping. As therefore she wept, she stooped into the tomb,
[12] and saw two angels clothed in white sitting, one towards the head and towards the feet, where Jesus's body was lying.
[13] And those say to her: Woman, why do you weep? She says to them, Because they have taken my Lord, and I do not know where they placed him.
[14] Having said these [things] she was turning back, and sees the Lord standing, and she did not know that it was Jesus.

[15] Jesus says to her: Woman, why do you weep? That [one] supposing that it is the gardener, says to him: Lord, if you have carried him [away], tell me where you placed him, and I will take him. 
[16] Jesus says to her: Mariam. Having been turned, that [one] says to him in Hebrew: Rabbi, which means teacher. 
[17] Jesus says to her: Be not touching me, for I am not yet gone up to the father. But be going to my brothers and tell them, I go up to my father and your father and my God and your God. 
[18] Mariam the Magdalene comes announcing to the disciples that: I have seen the Lord, and he said these [things] to her.
