Soon after healing the servant of a Centurion, Jesus and his disciples traveled to Nain, a small town not far from Nazareth. When they arrived, they saw a funeral procession for a young man who was the only son of a widow. Then, as explained in Luke 7:11-17, of which the following is a portion:
Then he went up and touched the coffin, and those carrying it stood still. He said, "Young man, I say to you, get up!" The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother. They were all filled with awe and praised God. "A great prophet has appeared among us," they said. "God has come to help his people." This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country. (Luke 7:14-17).
