Dear friend of St. Athanasius Academy:

Author of Resurrection and Life – Jesus:  On the road to Bethany, John 10:39-40

Not unto the death of Lazarus, but unto the glory of Jesus – John 11:4

John 11: 39: "Take away the stone." Martha, said to Jesus, "Lord, by now He is giving off an odor. He has been dead four days." 40 Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God."

In His guidance, it is good for people to see beyond miracles in hopes to grasp a deeper appreciation of His glory and grace. This is possible only by active participation – for such is the path of knowing Jesus to be our Father, from in the beginning.
