Have you ever wondered what happened to Lazarus, whom Jesus raised from the grave?  Due to the fact that many came to believe in Christ Jesus because of this miracle, Lazarus was compelled to visit Cyprus to avoid their revenge. 

In Citium, Lazarus became the spiritual leader of the town and was the bishop for thirty years.  Citium is, also, where Lazarus is believed to have died.

There is, also, a Church tradition which says that Lazarus  traveled from Cyprus to Marseilles, France, ministered and died there. 

Another Church tradition says that Lazarus returned to Gaul from Britain to Marseilles, taking with him Mary Magdalene and Martha (his sisters.)  He was appointed bishop in Marseilles, and died there seven years later.

Whichever account is correct, Lazarus is firmly associated with both Cyprus and Marseilles, France.
