It’s a somber scene: a widow is burying her only son. In those days, being a widow was incredibly difficult because without a husband or a son, she would have had no means of support.

This widow is not only grieving the loss of her beloved son but also facing an uncertain and challenging future.

When Jesus sees her, His heart goes out to her. He is deeply moved by her sorrow and the hopelessness of her situation. Jesus walks up to her and says, “Don’t cry.

Then He does something truly remarkable. He goes over to the bier (that’s like an open coffin) and touches it. The pallbearers stop, and everyone’s eyes are on Jesus, wondering what He will do next.

Jesus speaks directly to the dead young man, saying, “Young man, I say to you, get up!”

And just like that, the young man sits up and begins to talk. Imagine the shock and joy of everyone around! Jesus then gives the young man back to his mother, restoring her son to life and her hope for the future.

The people are awestruck and filled with awe. They praise God, saying, “A great prophet has appeared among us” and “God has come to help His people.”

News of this amazing miracle spreads quickly throughout the region.
