Wesley's Notes for John 11:49


11:49 That year - That memorable year, in which Christ was to die. It was the last and chief of Daniel's seventy weeks, the fortieth year before the destruction of Jerusalem, and was celebrated for various causes, in the Jewish history. Therefore that year is so peculiarly mentioned: Caiaphas was the high priest both before and after it. Ye know nothing - He reproves their slow deliberations in so clear a case.


People's Bible Notes for John 11:49


Joh 11:49 Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year. The year the Savior died. He was a Sadducee, crafty, cruel, sensual, had been high priest for fifteen years, and was deposed three years later. Ye know nothing at all. Don't understand what the crisis requires.

    The first 1st letter In the Bible is I. Also the first Roman numeral is I. I can be spelled ,Eye . The Eye of GOD is always watching, always hearing always seeing always loving always caring. Ecclesiastes 11:7 has 2 parts . Part A " Then shall dust return to the earth as it was ". Part B "And the spirit return into GOD who gave it." All will return to GOD.

    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!!
  • Obbie Beal
    (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?
