Death is an inescapable reality, as we all know (though we may not want to think or talk about it).

But Jesus reminds us that he is an even more foundational reality than death. Jesus existed before death ever entered the world, he conquered death through his own death, and he will outlive death itself … by such a long stretch that in eternity death will be only a speck in the rearview mirror.

For this reason, knowing Jesus is an infinitely greater goal than avoiding death. And Jesus knows this. That is why Jesus would love Lazarus and wait to let him die before showing up at his home! Because the most loving thing Jesus can do is let us get to know him better, see his glory more.
