Resurrection: Jesus corrects Martha
In this passage, Martha replies to Jesus' comment, after He states that her brother will be raised again. Jesus knows that He is about to raise her brother from the grave of his physical death. But Martha has understood Jesus to be referring to the resurrection of the last day. Errantly, Martha believes that there willl be a physical resurrection of the dead, but Jesus corrects her by stating that He is the resurrection that she believes is yet to come.
