Lazarus (lăz'a-rŭs), an abbreviation of Eleazar, whom God helps. 1. A person of Bethany residing with his two sisters, in whose household Christ was a frequent guest. He was raised from the tomb by Christ in the presence of the family and a number of Jews, after he had been dead four days. So incensed were the Jews at this that they sought to kill not only Christ, but even Lazarus. John 11:1-57; John 12:1 to John 11:2. In the parable by which our Saviour illustrates the retributions of the future world one of the parties is named Lazarus. Luke 16:19-31.
