Where can I learn more about Lazarus?
« on: July 05, 2011, 09:20:45 PM »
I saw the other thread about the rich man and Lazarus and realized this would be an excellent area to ask my question.

The raising of Lazarus from the dead is one story that has always stood out to me.  The fact that the gospels don't really go into much detail after that only leaves more questions.  To the best of my knowledge, Lazarus became a bishop of Crete (i think), but what did he do during that time?  How many years later did he die, and is the cause known (old age?)

Google image for "Church of Saint Lazarus" returns some great inside and outside including the beautiful iconostasis (I don't how to insert images on this site.
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman
