    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.

    Verses 35 and 36: Even though Jesus knew he was going to resurrect Lazarus, he wept because death is a very painful experience. Jesus understands how we feel when we lose someone we love to death.
