Martha lived with his brother Lazarus in Bethany, in Judea.

One day, Lazarus became ill and dying. Jesus went to Bethany (with his disciples, who came as it was in Judea that were those who had tried to stone Jesus, and so they might die with him). Lazarus was dead as Jesus arrived, and Martha came to him to told him so. Jesus ordered his grave opened, prayed and asked Lazarus to come forth, and Lazarus rose from the dead.

Those who saw the miracle believed that Jesus was the Messiah promised by the prophets.[1]
