Luke 4:16, 7:11-17

As I was reading in Luke, I got curious about the town Nain.  This town was where Jesus raised a widow’s son from the dead.  After a search in, I found out Nain is mentioned just once in the Bible.  According to, Nain means “lovely” or “green pastures” in Hebrew.  On this ancient map, it is about ten miles from Nazareth.  Can you find Nain?


Isaiah 1:17, James 1:27

If you’re experiencing winter blues, consider turning your attention to orphans and widows.  If the Bible is a pillar in your life, than you already know about the significance of helping them.

In the Old Testament, Isaiah tells the people to stand up for orphans and widows.  In the New Testament, James tells the people that religion God considers faultless is to care for widows and orphans, “and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

Do you know or know of any orphans or widows?  Can you help them in some way today?

Luke 7:11-17, Luke 8:41-42, 49-56, Luke 24

John 11:1-44

From, I found four “death to life” accounts involving Jesus in the New Testament.  Jesus raised the widow’s son, Jairus’ daughter and Lazarus from the dead.  And of course there is the resurrection.

Is there anything impossible for Jesus?  No.
