When the Lord saw the poor widow following her son to the grave, he had compassion on her. See Christ's power over death itself. The gospel call to all people, to young people particularly, is, Arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light and life. When Christ put life into him, it appeared by the youth's sitting up. Have we grace from Christ? Let us show it. He began to speak: whenever Christ gives us spiritual life, he opens the lips in prayer and praise. When dead souls are raised to spiritual life, by Divine power going with the gospel, we must glorify God, and look upon it as a gracious visit to his people. Let us seek for such an interest in our compassionate Saviour, that we may look forward with joy to the time when the Redeemer's voice shall call forth all that are in their graves. May we be called to the resurrection of life, not to that of damnation.

(Excerpt from Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary)


He walked up, opened the blanket, and laid his hands on the young man. The ones carrying it stopped and waited to see what he would do.
"Young man," he said out loud, "rise up!" To the amazement of all, he sat up and began to talk. Creator Sets Free then gave him back to his mother.
Her weeping turned to joy as she threw her arms around her son and kept kissing his face.
Great fear and trembling fell on the crowd. They gave honor to the Great Spirit, and said, "A great prophet has been sent to us! The Giver of Breath has come to visit his people!" News about this traveled far and wide throughout the Land of Promise (Judea) and into the surrounding villages and territories.
