11:35 Jesus wept - Out of sympathy with those who were in tears all around him, as well as from a deep sense of the misery sin had brought upon human nature.

Discussion for John 11

    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.

    The Word teaches there are some who are alive TODAY who will never die-see v26. Be blessed in Christ. Amen. 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 1 Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    We are just pilgrims-- passing through -- this world is not our home. (If we believe in Jesus Christ) Jesus said in John 14:2-3, In my Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you, ... that where I am, you will be also.
