Bible Commentary for John 11:3

Wesley's Notes for John 11:3


11:1 One Lazarus - It is probable, Lazarus was younger than his sisters. Bethany is named, the town of Mary and Martha, and Lazarus is mentioned after them, #John 11:5|. Ecclesiastical history informs us, that Lazarus was now thirty years old, and that he lived thirty years after Christ's ascension.

11:2 It was that Mary who afterward anointed, &c. She was more known than her elder sister Martha, and as such is named before her.

11:4 This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God - The event of this sickness will not be death, in the usual sense of the word, a final separation of his soul and body; but a manifestation of the glorious power of God.
