“The Consoling Christ” was given in 1918 by the Boys’ Bible Class taught by Roy C. Dowd. A contractor and carpenter, he took the boys on many outings and trips. Lazarus, Mary and Martha’s brother, became ill and died. after he was buried several people came to comfort the women. Martha heard Jesus was coming and went to meet him. “Your brother will rise to life,” Jesus told her. Martha returned and told Mary that Jesus wanted to see her. Mary arrived where Jesus was, and as soon as she saw him she fell at his feet. “lord,” she said, “if you had been here my brother would not have died!” Jesus saw her weeping, and he saw how the people with her were weeping also; his heart was touched and he was deeply moved. They went to the cave where Lazarus had been buried for four days. Jesus said, “Lazarus, come out!” and he did. John 11:1-44
