Take Away the Stone

“Jesus therefore again groaning in Himself comes to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. Jesus said,
‘Take you away the stone.’
Martha, the sister of him that was dead, said unto Him, ‘Lord, by this time he stinks: for he hath been dead four days.’ Jesus said unto her,
‘Said I not unto you, that, if you would believe, you should see the glory of God?’
Then they took away the stone where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up His eyes, and said,
‘Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. And I knew that You hear Me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that You have sent Me.’
And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice,
‘Lazarus, come forth.’
And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said unto them,
‘Loose him, and let him go.’
Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on Him.” John 11:38-45
