LENGTH: 34 pages

This study regards the text from the perspective of a play in three acts with seven scenes, each focusing on one of the dramatis personae. It introduces the traditional Orthodox theology of the icon of the raising of Lazarus to illumine the text. Each Act closes with questions for prayer and pondering, making the monograph useful for a self-directed retreat. Of special liturgical interest in the Church’s preparation for Holy Week, this passage of Scripture is a timeless challenge to awaken us to awareness and aliveness. We are encouraged to leave behind what is dead and to respond to Christ’s call to liberation
