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.
Joh 11:35 Jesus wept. The shortest verse in the Bible and one of the most touching. For the only other occasion when Jesus wept, see Lu 19:41.

Jesus wept because Lazerus died and He knew that He must resurect Lazerus, to bring him back from heaven to prove to an unbelieving world that He is the one true son of God! He was true man and true God, it stands to reason He had all the same emotions that we do. Imagine the love...
Pastor André Datondji's comment on 2015-02-24 09:17:17:
At first sight, out of a somewhat superficial appreciation, it is hard to accept that Jesus, the Son of God, and himself being God could weep for any situation, no matter how difficult it is. However, this passage of the scriptures shows us that Jesus can really feel what we feel, he once endured hardships and knows pretty well the encounters we can come across each and every day. He experienced all these, but NEVER NEVER lost confidence and faith in the helping hand of his Father. Still nowadays, God 's heart is touched to tears when he watches us weeken down, loosing faith. God knows us far more than we do and he is completely able to give us victory in all those things in our daily walk, PROVIDED WE DON 'T LOOSE FAITH IN HIM.

Pastor Ryan Sheppard's comment on 2014-10-04 09:17:30:
Jesus wept goes all the way back to the garden of Eden where mankind first disobeyed God 's explicit instructions and encompassed all the sins including the obvious sin of unbelief surrounding Him at that present time knowing Jesus is God knowing Jesus knew He would soon offer Himself up to pay for every sin past, present and future, plus, He wept over the loss of the life of Lazuras which highlights for us just how real God 's love is for us and totally explains God 's grace. God does NOT want any of us earthlings to perish. We all have a free will choice and Jesus weeping proves this, for God would never have wept if He ultimately wanted Lazuras to die. Jesus allows everything to happen that happens for the betterment of His true believers. So why make our Lord weep? Instead learn from John 11 35 and bring to life a greater witness and testimony for our Lord Jesus Christ.

Christ needs us to believe. It 's just that simple. When we believe, even though we do not understand, we accept that He is Sovereign over every part of our being body, heart, mind or as I like to call it strength, spirit soul . He keeps His promises and we know this and so we do not require proof in this lifetime or the next. This is the key to the door of having righteousness counted toward you. It is also why Abraham did not need to see nor did he wait until all was received. He simply believed and kept it moving. Because Abraham was so willing in his strength, spirit and soul to accept and believe we all share in his blessing. Jesus wept because he just needs us to believe.

of a truth Jesus came in form of man to have the feeling of man so as to be good mediator between God and man but that s not the point here he wept bcos people hardly understand the things of the spirit he made clear to Martha and Mary in vers 4 that Lazarus sickness was not up to death but for the glory of God to be seen yet the two sisters were stil making blame of him no there on time and he was disappointed in them and burst into weeping

Jesus wept because the community did not believe in him, yet Martha and Mary said had He were to be there their brother would not have died.

My Jesus wept from my own point of view is because Jesus while on earth took human being nature even though he was the Son of God and never sined. John 1:14 so he felts for our pains, our emotions, our burdens etc at humans we pass through on earth just like mary and martha. Thank you.

Our Loving Saviour, Jesus. How We Love You. So Your Tears Are Only Temporary. For The Sins Of This World.
Tanya's comment on 2012-12-21 13:17:14:
It is very touching. Jesus wept because of the way the world was, how some betrayed him, and didn't believe in him.
Jenny's comment on 2012-12-12 06:56:40:
I believe Jesus wept also because of their unbelief in God. Jesus knew that through the power of God, this man would have been okay, but since they didn't understand, Jesus wept.
Teresa's comment on 2012-03-05 14:00:03:
I believe Jesus wept because his heart was grieved to bring his friend back to life on earth. I wouldnt wish any of my fellow christians whom have passed to be back on this earth.

I believe Jesus wept because of their unbelief in him. He knew he could bring the dead to life. This was done for them to see the miracle.
