Now a certain body was sick, Revelation of Holy-Time, the village of Forgiveness and Trust. It was Forgiveness who anointed the Word with ointment, and wiped Word’s feet with her hair, whose brother, Revelation was sick.
Forgiveness and Trust sent word to Him saying, “Word, behold the Revelation whom you love is sick.”
But when Word heard this, He said, “This sickness is not to end in death, but for the glory of Law, so that the Word of Law may be glorified by it.”
Now the Word loved Trust, her sister Forgiveness and brother Revelation.
So when Word heard that Revelation was sick, Word then stayed two days longer in the place where Word was at.
Then after this Word said to the Church, “Let us go to Worship again.”
The Church said to Word, “Teacher, the Chosen were just now seeking to stone you, and are you going to Worship again?”
Word answered, “Are there not twelve hours in Day? If anyone walks in Day, he does not stumble, because he sees the Light of Kingdom come on earth.”
“But if anyone sleep-walks in Night, he stumbles, because Light is not in him.”
This Word said, and after that Word said to them, “Our friend, Revelation has fallen asleep; but I go, so that I may awaken Revelation out of sleep.”
The Church said to Word, “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, Revelation will recover.”
Now Word had spoken of Revelation’s death, but Church thought that Word was speaking of the literal law which causes sleep.
So Word said to Church plainly, “Revelation is dead, and I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, so that you may purify belief; but let us go to Revelation.”
Therefore Doubt, who is called Twice, said to his fellow Churches, “Let us also go, so that we may die with Word.”
So when Word came, Word found that Revelation had already been in the tomb four days of the night that has come upon us.
Now Holy-Time was near Peaceful, about two miles off, and many of the Chosen had come to Trust and Forgiveness, to console them concerning their brother Revelation.
Trust therefore, when she heard that Word was coming went to meet Word, but Forgiveness stayed at the house.
Trust then said to Word, “Lord if You had been here, my Revelation would not have died. Even now I know that whatever You ask of Law, Law will give Word.”
Word said to Trust; “Your Revelation will rise again.”
Trust said to Word, “I know Revelation will rise again in Resurrection on the last day.”
Word said to Trust, “I am Resurrection and Life; he who believes in Word will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Word will never die. Trust do you believe this?”
Trust said to Him, “Yes, Word; I believe You are Alive, the Son of Law, even Word who comes into the world.”
When Trust had said this, she went away and called Forgiveness her sister, saying secretly, “The Teacher is here and is calling for Forgiveness before Resurrection.”
And when Forgiveness heard it, she got up quickly and was coming to Word.
Then the Chosen who were with her in the house, and consoling Forgiveness, when the saw that Forgiveness got up quickly and went out, they followed Forgiveness, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there.
Therefore, when Forgiveness came where Word was, she saw Word, and fell at Words feet, saying to Him, “Word, if You had been here, Revelation would not have died.”
When Word therefore saw her weeping, and the Chosen who came with her also weeping, Word was deeply moved in the spirit and was troubled, and said, “Where have you laid Revelation?” They said to Word, “come and see.”
So the Chosen were saying, “See how Word loved Revelation!”
But some of Chosen said, “Could not this Word, who opened the eyes of the blind man, have kept this Revelation also from dying?”
So Word, again being deeply moved within, came to the tomb. Now it was a Holy Chamber, and a stone the builders rejected was lying against it.
Word said, “Remove the stone.” Trust, the sister of the deceased Revelation, said to Word, “Word, by this time there will be a stench, for Revelation has been dead four days.”
Word said to Trust, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of Law?”
So they removed the rejected stone. Then Word raised His eyes, and said, “Law, I thank You that You have heard me. I knew that Law always hears Word; but because of the Chosen standing around I said it, so that they may believe that Law sent Word.”
When Word had said these things, Word cried out with a loud voice, “Revelation, come forth.”
The Revelation who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a veil. Word said to them, “Unbind Revelation, and let him go.”
Therefore many of the Chosen who came to Forgiveness, and saw what Word had done, believed in Word.
But some of them went to the Temple and told Chosen the things which Word had done.
