Lecture 25, The Raising of Dorcas:

Necromancy, or communicating with the dead, is a form of sorcery strictly forbidden in the law of God. But there is no law against speaking life into a corpse, which is exactly what Jesus did when He called Lazarus from the tomb. That resurrection power didn’t cease with Jesus’ earthly ministry. Who else experienced coming back from the dead? What can we learn from her life as well as her death? In “The Raising of Dorcas,” Dr. Sproul discusses the admirable qualities of a girl who died too soon, and what the Apostle Peter did about it.
