Lazarus
Whom God helps
Strong's #G2976

The New Testament mentions two men named Lazarus, the first of which may have never existed.

The first Lazarus is a beggar in Jesus' often taught Lazarus and the Rich Man parable. The second Lazarus was the central figure in Jesus' greatest miracle - the resurrecting back to life a human who had died!
