Jesus has righteous indignation towards a lack of application of doctrine

John 11:32 Therefore, when Mary came where Jesus was, she saw Him, and fell at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died."   Mary has not lost her doctrine. An ECS doesn’t disintegrate in four days, but her bitterness has led her to judge Jesus like Martha did for not...

Mary has doctrine, Martha does not, but neither apply so they are not comforted. John 11:16-24

John 11:15 and I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, so that you may believe; but let us go to him. "    And it is here that we see the real reason for this miracle. It is the seventh credit card that will fully reveal His Messiahship but the main goal of this miracle is to increase the faith of the...
