not revive, bring back to life!!!!!!!


Revive definition - restore to life or consciousness. :)


i agree with cdson...


Thanks for the comment, biblelover. I appreciate your concern to emphasise the miracle, but as Barb says the definition of 'revive' is "restore to life or consciousness". Given that the sentence starts "the child died" I think it's clear that I mean "restored to life".


Many miracles recorded in this chapter.
