    The narrative of Jesus' raising of the dead Lazarus has been a particular inspiration to theologians, artists and writers, with this relatively minor character becoming a commonplace in discussions of various forms of rebirth. Examining the text of the story within its Joannine context and alongside Lazarus' representation in early Christian art, Esler and Piper investigate how his revivification helped first-century readers to develop their faith and identity, and what it still has to say to 21st century theology.
