People's Bible Notes for John 11:25


Joh 11:25 I am the resurrection, and the life. Christ makes the grand, striking declaration that he is the RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE, words that never could have fallen from the lips of a sane mortal. They mean that he is the power which opens every grave, gives life to the sleepers, and calls them forth to a new existence; that the life that endows men with eternal being is in him and proceeds from him. In the light of his own resurrection they mean that when he burst open the tomb, he did it for humanity and in him humanity has won the victory over death.

Discussion for John 11

  • A disciple
    Why did Jesus fold the napkin that was over His face? Well, one thing, it completely proves the shroud of Turin to be a hoax, and roundly and soundly ensures that NO GRAVEN IMAGE OF CHRIST WAS LEFT for men to be snared by relic worship! They that worship and serve the LORD must worship and serve in the Spirit: if anyone has not the Spirit of Christ, he is not at all His!
  • TJ COLLIER
    Though it is not a salvation issue per se, but it is the scriptures. I see via the folded napkin in the tomb that Jesus rose calmly, in control, taking on the day one step at a time. There is an element of decency and order in so doing. Even after such a bloody, violent, and earth shaking event as His crucifixion, the day of His rising is one of quiet, calm, and peace. Folding a napkin.
  • Olegas Bogdanovas
    I have never considered that Jesus "folded" the napkin in the tomb. Why is this important?

    The fact is that Jesus rose from being dead, and was seen alive by several hundred people. That Jesus rose from the dead is the key of Christianity.

    Why did Jesus fold the Napkin?
  • Ray321
    John 11:4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. Jesus knew Lazarus believe and worshiped him, by bringing Lazarus from the dead, it was a picture of how Jesus was going to be Glorified when he dies.

    "Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me." JESUS
