Jesus' Miracles - Raising the dead

We've learned about Jesus' Miracles healing lepers, healing the blind, healing the paralyzed, healing women, healing on the sabbath, healing in a synagogue, healing a deaf and mute person, healing the centurion's servant and healing just by touching his cloak.

Jesus also raised people from the dead!

He did this three times.
Once he healed a man's sick daughter, saying "Little girl, I say to you get up!".

Another time was during a funeral for a widow's son. He went to the coffin and said "Young man I say to thee arise!" and the boy got right up and was alive.

He also raised a man named Lazarus who had been dead for four days. He was buried in a tomb. Jesus had the stone rolled away and said "Lazarus, come out!" and Lazarus came out and was alive.
