19 And many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary, so as to console them over their brother.
20 Therefore, Martha, when she heard that Jesus was arriving, went out to meet him. But Mary was sitting at home.
21 And then Martha said to Jesus: "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.
22 But even now, I know that whatever you will request from God, God will give to you."
23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother shall rise again."
24 Martha said to him, "I know that he shall rise again, at the resurrection on the last day."
25 Jesus said to her: "I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in me, even though he has died, he shall live.
26 And everyone who lives and believes in me shall not die for eternity. Do you believe this?"
27 She said to him: "Certainly, Lord. I have believed that you are the Christ, the Son of the living God, who has come into this world."
38 Now it happened that, while they were traveling, he entered into a certain town. And a certain woman, named Martha, received him into her home.
39 And she had a sister, named Mary, who, while sitting beside the Lord's feet, was listening to his word.
40 Now Martha was continually busying herself with serving. And she stood still and said: "Lord, is it not a concern to you that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore, speak to her, so that she may help me."
41 And the Lord responded by saying to her: "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled over many things.
42 And yet only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the best portion, and it shall not be taken away from her."
