|Chapter 242||The Great Gospel of John, Book 6|
11. David, the man after the heart of God, also had two sons whom he loved very much. Although he was pursued by Absalom and he (David) opposed him with all power to defeat him, what premium would he not have paid to him who could bring back his beloved son alive! Salomo was wisdom himself and was always around David; but David's love and inclination was towards Absalom.
12. O My beloved, this parable says endlessly much! What joy will David's heart feel, if his lost son could be brought back to him alive!
13. O My beloved, in love there are still many things hidden, what no wisdom has ever fathomed; therefore is the Father as the everlasting love also bigger than the Son, who, as its light, is before you.
14. Therefore I say: many things are impossible for even the most wise people, which by God in His love is still possible! - Do you believe this?"
15. Said now Lazarus full of joy: "Lord, we thank You most fervently for this message; since who is not hit with the sevenfold darkness of the soul, must most tangibly recognize, what You wanted to indicate by this. At least I have understood You most clearly and this will be the case with many."
16. Said nearly all who were present here, that they understood what has been said quite well.
