The Gospel for the fifth Sunday of Lent is the story about Jesus’ friend Lazarus being raised from the dead after being in his grave for four days. Jesus knew that what He was about to do would cost Him His life, but that didn’t stop Him from raising Lazarus from the dead. This miracle triggered the events of that first holy week. And true enough, from then on, the Pharisees and other critics of Jesus put their plan in motion to have Jesus executed.
