Luke 16:19-24

There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and
fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. But there was a
certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at
his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from
the rich man's table.

Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. So it was that
the beggar died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's
bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in
torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham
afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

Then he cried and said, "Father Abraham, have mercy on me,
and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in
water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame."

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

As He was traveling to Jerusalem, shortly before the
Passover, Jesus told the story of the rich man and Lazarus,
(see Bible verses above). We need not assume the story of
the rich man and Lazarus is a parable. There are no parables
that give names to any of the people featured there.

We know that Jesus had a friend named Lazarus who died and
was raised from the dead by Him. Jesus knew that Lazarus
was dead before He ever got to Bethany. It only makes sense
that the Lazarus in Jesus' story and the one He raised from
the dead shortly after telling that story are the same
person. The lessons we learn from both accounts complement
each other so beautifully!

God Bless You!

A. And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth
year after the children of Israel had come out of the land
of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel,
in the month of Ziv, which is the second month, that he
began to build the house of the Lord.

Solomon had a great desire to build the temple to fulfill
the hopes of his father David.
