Lazarus SaturdayEastern Churches
Lazarus. The man Jesus raised from the dead in John 11:1-53. In *catacomb art he is represented as a smaller person wrapped in funerary dressings, Jesus attending with a rhabdos (wand). Lazarus Saturday. The Saturday preceding *Palm Sunday. In the Gospel of John the *pericope concerning the raising of Lazarus (Jn 11:1-53) immediately precedes the beginning of the *Holy Week narrative, foreshadowing the resurrection of Jesus eight days later.
From Brett Provance, Pocket Dictionary of Liturgy and Worship (Downers Grove: InterVarsity Press, 2009), 74-75.
John 11:43In ancient Christian art, the resurrected Lazarus is always shown as a child-sized person (= Rebirth). The Jonah theme is found at the sides.
