It is generally assumed that our Lord only raised three persons from the dead - this young man of Nain. the little daughter of Jairus the ruler, and Lazarus of Bethany. But such an assumption is purely arbitrary.

We have before called attention to the vast number of miracles worked by Jesus during the two years and a half of the public ministry not reported by the evangelists at all, or only glanced at in passing. There were, most probably, among these unreported miracles several instances of men, women, and children raised from the dead. St. Augustine, in one of his sermons (98.), specially calls attention to this in his words, "of the numerous persons raised to life by Christ, three only are mentioned as specimens in the Gospels."

(Excerpt from the Pulpit Commentary)


Not long after this, Creator Sets Free (Jesus) and the ones who walked the road with him with him went to Village of Harmony (Nain). A large crowd of people trailed behind him. As he came near the village gate, a man who had crossed over was being carried, wrapped in a blanket, to a burial site. He was the only sone of his mother, a widow. A crowd of people from the village was walking with her. When Creator Sets Free saw her, he felt great compassion and said, "Don't weep. The Great Spirit has seen your tears." (Luke 7:11-13 FNV)
