Sunday to Sunday

Fifth Sunday in Lent

Old Testament: Ezekiel 37:1-14

Epistle: Romans 8:1-11

Gospel: John 11:1-45 (46-53).

In a vision, God commanded Ezekiel to cry for breath to enter dry bones scattered across the valley floor. By bringing those bones to life by His Spirit, God promised to raise His people from death to life.

Likewise, when raising Lazarus from his death due to sickness, Jesus shows Himself as Lord over life and death. By this sign, He points to His own death for our sins and His own resurrection by which we are saved.

In Him, we are turned from death to life. For we know that the Spirit, by Whom the Father raised Jesus from the dead, will bring us—body and soul—from the grave to live forever.
