Compassionate Teacher

A teacher went into a town. His students as well as a large crowd of people followed him. He approached a cemetery where a funeral was going on. A widow’s only son was being interred. A large crowd of people watched the proceedings.

The teacher saw the woman and immediately walked over to her and said, “Don’t cry.”

He then went over to where the coffin was being carried and stood near it. “Young man, get up.”

The dead man sat up and began to talk! The teacher walked over to the widow again, “Your son is back.”

Everyone’s jaws dropped. Murmurings could be heard clearly. “What just happened?” “Who is this?” “Praise God.” Rumors about this teacher began to grow.

~ Paraphrased from Luke 7:11-17
