Jesus could have gotten to Lazarus before he died. He was less than a day’s journey from his hometown. But He waited! Why? The religious leaders of Jesus’ day had come up with what they considered to be Messianic miracles i.e., miracles that could only be done by the true Messiah. One of those miracles included raising someone from the dead after three days.
