The Sisters of Bethany: Mary and Martha, who together with their brother Lazarus are good friends of Jesus, face a test. Lazarus has fallen ill. Urgently they send for Jesus to come to his aid; however, He delays the journey, and Lazarus dies. The sisters despair with Lazarus’ death. Anxiously they await Jesus’ coming to comfort them, and confront their personal trials of faith and submission to God’s will.
