How do we reconcile John 11:4 with the fact Lazarus died in this week's Sunday School Lesson?


"John 11:4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby."


Answer: The word "death" here is equivalent to remaining under death. His sickness is not fatal. It is not designed for his death, but to furnish an opportunity for a signal display of the glory of God. It is intended to exhibit the power of the Son of God, and to be a proof at once of the truth of his mission; of his power and glory as the Messiah; and of the great doctrine that the dead will rise.

The purpose of the sickness was not to give glory unto DEATH but the purpose was for the glory of God so that the Son of God might be glorified. 🙌🏃‍♀️💨
