The Plot to Kill Lazarus
Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, h whom He had raised from the dead.
i But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also,
j because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.

Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!
And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Loose him, and let him go.
"But he said to him, 'If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.'"
Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and had seen the things Jesus did, believed in Him.
For this reason the people also met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign.
