“Now when Jesus performed this miracle, he did not first have to secure the cooperation of Lazarus. Rather, the miracle resulted in the cooperation of Lazarus. After he was raised from the dead, Lazarus did all the hopping and all the mumbling through the grave clothes. But prior to the resurrecting word of authority, Lazarus was simply dead, to state it simply. The raising of Lazarus was not a cooperative effort between Christ and Lazarus” (From After Darkness, Light, p. 141).
