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.

    Man cannot comprehend the resurrection of those dead in Christ nor the translation of those who are alive in Christ but NOTHING is impossible for GOD. Be blessed in Christ and Spirit filled! Amen. Mark 10:27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. 1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

    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.

    The reason why Jesus waited two more days was because the Jews believe that the spirit hovered around the body for three days and on the four day the spirit gives up and leave He also waited four days because He wanted his Father to be glorified and them to know he was the Son of God
