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

  • David Teer
    Why do men fear other men? We should fear who can judge our souls not humans. We must fear the grave as we fear the bed.
  • Irene123
    E. Ijioma - I wish you had given the scripture for the plan of salvation.
  • Emeka Ijioma
    I know that whosoever believes in Jesus and follows the pattern he has given, that is, repent of our sins, offer ourselves and be Baptised by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ and remain in the fear of God (process of sanctification), we shall receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and will be saved. This is the process of salvation laid down in the Bible for us to follow.
  • Geraldine
    This means that only Jesus can save us. He gave His life on calvary to save a sinner like me and for sure once you accepted Him as your Personal Lord Saviour, definitely you will have an eternal life in Heaven. Thank you Lord for this promise.
  • Judith
    It touches my heart very deep Amen
  • Irene
    The chief priests and Pharisees; " ..... and the Romans shall come ..... "; Matt. 6:33. They saw everything the ordinary Jews saw- who accepted Him. Money and power.
