Welcome to another Chicken Skin Moment with Pastor Dain Spore! The Question: Why did Jesus weep? After all, He knew He was about to raise Lazarus from the dead. Answer: Because Jesus saw the suffering of Lazarus' loved ones. They were suffering because they had been separated from the one they loved. From Adam and Eve until now, we have suffered from separation from God and from each other. Jesus understands our sorrow. He wept, but He was in the process of defeating death and separation!
