People's Bible Notes for John 11:25


Joh 11:25 I am the resurrection, and the life. Christ makes the grand, striking declaration that he is the RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE, words that never could have fallen from the lips of a sane mortal. They mean that he is the power which opens every grave, gives life to the sleepers, and calls them forth to a new existence; that the life that endows men with eternal being is in him and proceeds from him. In the light of his own resurrection they mean that when he burst open the tomb, he did it for humanity and in him humanity has won the victory over death.

    V. 43 - does anyone know WHY Jesus said, "Lazarus, come forth?"

    This chapter has to be one of the most profound in all scriptures, revealing Christ's tender, merciful heart, and God given power over death. I love the Christ, and His atoning sacrifice for all mankind. I know that through Him and the gift of repentance that I have the hope to became even as He is. He has commanded us to "be ye therefore perfect even as I and your Father in Heaven is perfect"

    Jesus compared death to sleep in this chapter showing that he has the power to undo death by resurrecting someone just as easily as someone can be awoken from sleep.
