Bible Commentary for John 11:42

Wesley's Notes for John 11:42


11:40 Said I not - It appears by this, that Christ had said more to Martha than is before recorded.

11:41 Jesus lifted up his eyes - Not as if he applied to his Father for assistance. There is not the least show of this. He wrought the miracle with an air of absolute sovereignty, as the Lord of life and death. But it was as if he had said, I thank thee, that by the disposal of thy providence, thou hast granted my desire, in this remarkable opportunity of exerting my power, and showing forth thy praise.

11:43 He cried with a loud voice - That all who were present might hear. Lazarus, come forth - Jesus called him out of the tomb as easily as if he had been not only alive, but awake also.

11:44 And he came forth bound hand and foot with grave clothes - Which were wrapt round each hand and each foot, and his face was wrapt about with a napkin - If the Jews buried as the Egyptians did, the face was not covered with it, but it only went round the forehead, and under the chin; so that he might easily see his way.

  • Susan Raspin on John 11:42
    I have never noticed this before, and it just goes to show that, because it is in the past tense it means that Jesus has been and is forever with his Father, Amen glory to God
