恭讀聖若望福音 11:17-27

耶穌一到了伯達尼,得知拉匝祿在墳墓裡,已經四天了。伯達尼靠近耶路撒冷,相距約十五「斯塔狄」,因而有許多猶太人,來到瑪爾大和瑪利亞那裡,為她們兄弟的死,安慰她們。
瑪爾大一聽說耶穌來了,便去迎接他;瑪利亞仍坐在家裡。瑪爾大對耶穌說:「主!如果你在這裡,我的兄弟決不會死!就是現在,我也知道:你無論向天主求什麼,天主必要賜給你。」
耶穌對瑪爾大說:「你的兄弟必定要復活。」
瑪爾大說:「我知道在末日復活時,他必要復活。」
耶穌對瑪爾大說:「我就是復活,就是生命;信從我的,即使死了,仍要活著;凡活著而信從我的人,必永遠不死。你信麼?」
瑪爾大回答說:「是的,主,我信你是默西亞,天主子,要來到世界上的那一位。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 11:17-27

When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, only about two miles away. And many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them about their brother. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him; but Mary sat at home. Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. [But] even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you.” Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise.” Martha said to him, “I know he will rise, in the resurrection on the last day.” Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” She said to him, “Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world.”
