The death of Lazarus prophetically foreshadows being in exile in the nations of the world.
In Yeshua’s earthly ministry, the things that we read about him in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, while these are literal events, at the same time, they are prophetically foreshadowing his role to gather and unite the 12 tribes of Israel. He died to make two sheepfolds become one (John 10: 16-17). We are now going to look at John 11 at the account of the resurrection of Lazarus. We will be going through the chapter and look at key phrases and biblically define them. Martha is a prophetic picture of the Christian church (House of Israel). Mary is a prophetic picture of the Jewish brethren (House of Judah). What we will see is that Lazarus is a prophetic picture of the exiles of Israel. The death of Lazarus prophetically foreshadows being in exile in the nations of the world. The resurrection of Lazarus represents the ingathering of the scattered exiles of Israel, paralleling the gathering up of the dead dry bones of Ezekiel 37.
