Custody of the Holy Places
The burial tomb of Lazarus of Bethany, the subject of a prominent miracle performed by Jesus in chapter 11 of the Gospel of John, in which Jesus restores him to life four days after his death. Each of Jesus' seven signs illustrates some particular aspect of his divine authority; the Raising of Lazarus exemplifies his power over death. The ancient steps leading from the tomb are the steps Lazarus walked up to meet Jesus in John 11:43-44.
