“Four days was also plenty of time for Lazarus to look around and size things up. But if he ever told anybody what he saw, it wasn’t recorded. Whatever it was, it made Lazarus very serious. He lived another 30 years as bishop of Cyprus, and it’s said that he never smiled or joked—except one time. Once Lazarus saw a thief stealing a clay pot, and he smiled and said, ‘Clay is stealing clay’.”
