    It interested me to learn from the William Henry Internet site that the story of Jesus raising Lazarus is only in one of the gospels, that of John, and why that might be. Part of the explanation given in William Henry’s first paragraph about John chapter 11 is, “Some suggest that, when the other evangelists wrote, Lazarus was alive, and it would not well agree either with his safety or with his humility to have it recorded till now, when it is supposed he was dead. . . . In this journey [on the way to raise Lazarus] some circumstances happened which the other evangelists record, as the healing of the blind man at Jericho, and the conversion of Zaccheus. . . .”
