Wake up Call
My fifth Lenten vignette. Sorry for the short post, but there isn't a ton of detail in the MOC this time. Anyway, enjoy!
About this creation
An excerpt from the Gospel reading from the Fifth Sunday of Lent:
John 11:38-44
So Jesus, perturbed again, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay across it. Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the dead man's sister, said to him, "Lord, by now there will be a stench; he has been dead for four days." Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?" So they took away the stone. And Jesus raised his eyes and said, "Father, I thank you for hearing me. I know that you always hear me; but because of the crowd here I have said this, that they may beliece that you sent me." And when he had said this, he cried out in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" The dead man came out, tied hand and foot with burial bands, and his face was wrapped in a cloth. So Jesus said to them, "Untie him and let him go."

Lazarus coming out of the darkness. Note Jesus' reflection on the rock to the right. That wasn't intentional when I was photographing.

Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead.

This passage really shows the power of God. Jesus was able to raise Lazarus, even from being four days dead, into life again. Not only does this passage demonstrate the Lord's power, though, but it also is significant because it subtly explains that through Jesus, life even after death is possible for everyone.

Quoting Nick Nitro Brick say, are you going to be at brick fiesta? please say you are! I am going!
Sorry, the trip is just too far for me. Perhaps when I'm an older guy who can take days off whenever he wants. :p

i must admit that i expected a lot from this scene, wich has to be one of my favorites among the christians gospels! because of that, i m a bit disapointed by your cave, i m not bothered by the mommy at all, i find it was the closest thing you could comme up with! and your explanations more than cover the topic in my point of view, the reflection of jesus on the rock is the best thing of the build to me! as it really look like a miracle now! i hope next year, you ll do a more intricate cave build! happy easter cody! i hope you get lego instead of chocolate, much better for your health, and lasts way longer too! good work on spreading the love and lessons of the great creator!

Quoting Nick Pascale Cody and IDEA 4 U... when we are done with all the 'Lenten' Sundays can you do a new creation ... Lent 2011 and in it just put one pic from each of the Sundays. Good idea? Yes, No?
That's a good idea! I actually ordered a bunch more Jesus heads, and I plan to put this on display at my church somewhere. I'll try to document some of that, too.

I missed the series 3, so it was either go out and buy one of these guys from the new sets, or order a different mummy from bricklink and have a late post.

The greatest part of this chapter in the New Testament for me is the test of TRUST if you do not trust how can you have faith? Jesus challenged his lady friends Martha & Mary (sisters) on this and once again Martha didn't get the message --- remember she did not sit at Jesus' feet, Mary did which annoyed her and asked Jesus to tell her to help her with the housework! I always wondered if Lazarus was also tested! So how can we as christians not possess both TRUST and the FAITH it brings? As always TOP NOTCH! A bit close to Sunday though! I can't wait for the Next Installment! Cody and IDEA 4 U... when we are done with all the 'Lenten' Sundays can you do a new creation ... Lent 2011 and in it just put one pic from each of the Sundays.

Although simple, this is extremely cool. And the reflection of Christ on the rock is not only neat, it's also iconic. Great work Cody.
