Wesley's Notes for John 11:41


11:41 Jesus lifted up his eyes - Not as if he applied to his Father for assistance. There is not the least show of this. He wrought the miracle with an air of absolute sovereignty, as the Lord of life and death. But it was as if he had said, I thank thee, that by the disposal of thy providence, thou hast granted my desire, in this remarkable opportunity of exerting my power, and showing forth thy praise.


People's Bible Notes for John 11:41


Joh 11:41 And Jesus lifted up [his] eyes. The Son always sought to honor the Father and to show that the Father was in him as he was in the Father. I thank thee that thou hast heard me. Constantly in communion with the Father, he had the Father's answer already and assent to what he was about to do.

    We need to heed ...while it's still day! we will by edifying the body and by witnessing to the lost. this chapter shows that there is a resurrection and also a separation from God...John 9:4 there is a time when no man can work.
  • Getto John
    It may have happened, but the Bible is a metaphor of how we're to spend time on earth. There's glory with God, here and in heaven. On earth there is trouble and floundering, doubt and disgrace. And Rome gave up on a reunion with Jesus. So why wait for his return any longer. God is who I believe, not man! His word brings life to the dead, after a time of trial of faith. On earth, troubles!!

    (25-26 are great example of the power of GOD as it relates to life, death, resurrection from the dead;) 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?

    Witnessing the resurrection of Lazarus would’ve been a marvelous sight and a sweet reunion with his sisters.
