24 So he called to him, "Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire."
25 But Abraham replied, "Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us."
27 He answered, "Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father's house, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment."
29 Abraham replied, "They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them."
30 "No, father Abraham," he said, "but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent."
31 He said to him, "If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead."
Why do you suppose the brothers would not have been convinced even if Lazrus was raised from the dead?
Was Lazaurus in fact raised from the dead? (John 11)
What effect did it have? (John 12:9-11)
What part do miracles play in convincing people that God has spoken?
