Lazarus come out! (Jn 11:43-11:43)

“When he had said this,

Jesus cried

With a loud voice.

‘Lazarus!

Come out!’”

καὶ ταῦτα εἰπὼν φωνῇ μεγάλῃ ἐκραύγασεν Λάζαρε, δεῦρο ἔξω.

John uniquely indicated that when he had said this (καὶ ταῦτα εἰπὼν), he cried out (ἐκραύγασεν) with a loud voice (φωνῇ μεγάλῃ).  He told Lazarus (Λάζαρε) to come out (δεῦρο ἔξω) of the cave tomb.  This was a very dramatic moment that symbolized what was going to take place at his own resurrection and at the last judgment day.  Jesus specifically called Lazarus by name.  Are you dramatic in your everyday activities?
