  • Lazarus Analysis

    What does this story say about people? Martha slightly blames Jesus for her brother’s death. Then she kind of back-tracks and displays a sign of faith, she knows who Jesus is.

Most of the Jews, after seeing Lazarus come out of the tomb alive, after being dead for at least four days, believed Jesus said who He said He was. What does this story say about Jesus? Again, Jesus states His Mission to Martha. He always tells the people why He is here. Jesus wept. That shows He was fully human and fully God. Jesus had human emotions, He loved Lazarus. Even though He knew He could (would) raise Lazarus from the dead, John 11:33 (NIV) says that Jesus was still “deeply moved in spirit and troubled”. When Martha hesitated to remove the stone from Lazarus’ tomb, Jesus was still patient with her, admonishing her because of her unbelief when she recently told Him she believed. Jesus prayed to His Father, aloud in front of the crowd. He prayed and used that prayer as a teaching point and as a way to bring others to Him. To point…

  • Bernie Satire

    Critics of Bernie have struggled to classify the movie, and viewers would certainly attest to this statement. The movie is placed in the satire genre, but this does not seem necessarily complete. The film is well made and the level that it grips the watcher is almost disturbing. Although the film begins with an unusual opening of a jolly and flamboyant mortician conducting a procedure on a corpse for a guest lecture, Bernie morphs into a dark irony. As he prepares the dead for burial, he…
