Verse Info. Notes John 11:1 Now a certain man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village where Mary and her sister Martha lived.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:2 It was the Mary who anointed the Lord with perfume and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. [John 12:3]
Verse Info. Notes John 11:3 So the sisters sent word to Him, saying, "Lord, he [our brother and Your friend] whom You love is sick."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:4 When Jesus heard this, He said, "This sickness will not end in death; but [on the contrary it is] for the glory and honor of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by it."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:5 Now Jesus loved and was concerned about Martha and her sister and Lazarus [and considered them dear friends].
Verse Info. Notes John 11:6 So [even] when He heard that Lazarus was sick, He stayed in the same place two more days.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:7 Then He said to His disciples, "Let us go back to Judea."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:8 The disciples said to Him, "Rabbi (Teacher), the Jews were only recently going to stone You, and You are [thinking of] going back there again?"
Verse Info. Notes John 11:9 Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours [of light] in the day? Anyone who walks in the daytime does not stumble, because he sees [by] the light of this world.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:10 "But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:11 He said this, and after that said, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:12 The disciples answered, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:13 However, Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that He was referring to natural sleep.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:14 So then Jesus told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:15 "And for your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:16 Then Thomas, who was called Didymus (the twin), said to his fellow disciples, "Let us go too, that we may die with Him."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:17 ¶ So when Jesus arrived, He found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:18 Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles away;
Verse Info. Notes John 11:19 and many of the Jews had come to see Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning [the loss of] their brother.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:20 So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet Him, while Mary remained sitting in the house.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:21 Then Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:22 "Even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give to You."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:23 Jesus told her, "Your brother will rise [from the dead]."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:24 Martha replied, "I know that he will rise [from the dead] in the resurrection on the last day."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, relies on) Me [as Savior] will live even if he dies;
Verse Info. Notes John 11:26 and everyone who lives and believes in Me [as Savior] will never die. Do you believe this?"
Verse Info. Notes John 11:27 She said to Him, "Yes, Lord; I have believed and continue to believe that You are the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), the Son of God, He who was [destined and promised] to come into the world [and it is for You that the world has waited]."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:28 ¶ After she had said this, she left and called her sister Mary, privately whispering [to her], "The Teacher is here and is asking for you."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:29 And when she heard this, she got up quickly and went to Him.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:30 ¶ Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met Him.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:31 So when the Jews who were with her in the house comforting her, saw how quickly Mary got up and left, they followed her, assuming that she was going to the tomb to weep there.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:32 When Mary came [to the place] where Jesus was and saw Him, she fell at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:33 When Jesus saw her sobbing, and the Jews who had come with her also sobbing, He was deeply moved in spirit [to the point of anger at the sorrow caused by death] and was troubled,
Verse Info. Notes John 11:34 and said, "Where have you laid him?" They said, "Lord, come and see."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:35 Jesus wept.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:36 So the Jews were saying, "See how He loved him [as a close friend]!"
Verse Info. Notes John 11:37 But some of them said, "Could not this Man, who opened the blind man's eyes, have kept this man from dying?"
Verse Info. Notes John 11:38 ¶ So Jesus, again deeply moved within [to the point of anger], approached the tomb. It was a cave, and a boulder was lying against it [to cover the entrance].
Verse Info. Notes John 11:39 Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to Him, "Lord, by this time there will be an offensive odor, for he has been dead four days! [It is hopeless!]"
Verse Info. Notes John 11:40 Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you believe [in Me], you will see the glory of God [the expression of His excellence]?"
Verse Info. Notes John 11:41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus raised His eyes [toward heaven] and said, "Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:42 "I knew that You always hear Me and listen to Me; but I have said this because of the people standing around, so that they may believe that You have sent Me [and that You have made Me Your representative]."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:43 When He had said this, He shouted with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!"
Verse Info. Notes John 11:44 Out came the man who had been dead, his hands and feet tightly wrapped in burial cloths (linen strips), and with a [burial] cloth wrapped around his face. Jesus said to them, "Unwrap him and release him."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:45 ¶ So then, many of the Jews who had come to [be with] Mary and who were eyewitnesses to what Jesus had done, believed in Him.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:46 But some of them went back to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:47 ¶ So the chief priests and Pharisees convened a council [of the leaders in Israel], and said, "What are we doing? For this man performs many signs (attesting miracles).
Verse Info. Notes John 11:48 "If we let Him go on like this, everyone will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our [holy] place (the temple) and our nation."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:49 But one of them, Caiaphas, who was the high priest that year [the year of Christ's crucifixion], said to them, "You know nothing at all!
Verse Info. Notes John 11:50 "Nor do you understand that it is expedient and politically advantageous for you that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation not perish."
Verse Info. Notes John 11:51 Now he did not say this [simply] on his own initiative; but being the high priest that year, he [was unknowingly used by God and] prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, [Is 53:8]
Verse Info. Notes John 11:52 and not only for the nation, but also for the purpose of gathering together into one body the children of God who have been scattered abroad. [Is 49:6]
Verse Info. Notes John 11:53 So from that day on they planned together to kill Him.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:54 ¶ For that reason Jesus no longer walked openly among the Jews, but left there and went to the district that borders on the uninhabited wilderness, to a town called Ephraim; and He stayed there with the disciples.
Verse Info. Notes John 11:55 ¶ Now the Passover of the Jews was approaching, and many from the country went up to Jerusalem before Passover to purify themselves [ceremonially, so that they would be able to participate in the feast].
Verse Info. Notes John 11:56 So they were looking for Jesus as they stood in the temple [area], and saying among themselves, "What do you think? Will He not come to the feast at all?"
Verse Info. Notes John 11:57 Now the chief priests and Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where He was, he was to report it so that they might arrest Him.
