In the village of Nain, there lived a widow, who had but one son. One day the son died and she was left to follow the coffin, as the funeral procession made its way to the burial site. As the procession approached the city gate they were met by a crowd following a man. The man they were following was Jesus. Through her grief she could see that Jesus was moving toward the coffin. The pallbearers stopped. The entire procession came to a halt; and they watched as Jesus placed His hand on the coffin. They heard Him say, “Young man, get up!” The dead son sat up and began talking. The son had a new life and the mother had a son.
