Bible Commentary for John 11:8

Wesley's Notes for John 11:8


11:7 Let us go into Judea - From the country east of Jordan, whither he had retired some time before, when the Jews sought to stone him, #John 10:39|,40.

11:9 Are there not twelve hours in the day? - The Jews always divided the space from sunrise to sunset, were the days longer or shorter, into twelve parts: so that the hours of their day were all the year the same in number, though much shorter in winter than in summer. If any man walk in the day he stumbleth not - As if he had said, So there is such a space, a determined time, which God has allotted me. During that time I stumble not, amidst all the snares that are laid for me. Because he seeth the light of this world - And so I see the light of God surrounding me.

11:10 But if a man walk in the night - If he have not light from God; if his providence does no longer protect him.
