Jesus Groaned in His Spirit

. . . Instead of immediately raising Lazarus from the dead, Jesus spends a long time in fruitless debate with the young man’s sisters, Mary and Martha, trying to persuade them not to press for Lazarus to be  raised from the dead. “I am the resurrection and the life,” he tells Martha, “He that believeth on me, though he were dead yet shall he live. And he that liveth and believeth on me shall never die. Believest thus this? St. John then tells us that Jesus “groans in his spirit” and is “deeply moved.”
