John 11

1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.

2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

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.

5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.

7 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.

8 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?

9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.

16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:

19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.

31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.

32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.

34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

35 Jesus wept.

36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

55 And the Jews’ passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.

56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?

57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.

  1. 47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

    48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

    50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

    The Pharisees of that day looked at the miracles Jesus did and sought for a way to stop him. Jesus was here to bring a new message to the world, life hope and peace! The pride of the Pharisees would not let them see who Jesus was and what he could do for the nation.
    Caiaphas the high priest saw the error of the plan of the Pharisees, Ye know nothing at all.
    We should realize that Jesus was coming as a lamb to bring salvation to the world. That through him (Jesus Christ) we might be saved.
    One man should die for the sins of many, but not just a man but God manifested in the flesh.

  2. With Jesus there is HOPE EVERLASTING!!!!!!!!!!

    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.
    32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
    35 Jesus wept.
    36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
    47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
    48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

    I love my God and I know He will be GLORIFIED in this infirmity!!!! For it is not to death but for Him to be Glorified!!!! There are so many things we can learn from Jesus. There was no fear in Him. He feels our pain and our grief. He grieved Himself. Every one around Him then saw His love. In verses 47&48, we see what happens when politics tries their best to separate from religion. The more I study the life of Jesus, the more I am led to believe that they would of accepted their Messiah if it wasn’t for Politics. What a sad day it is when you give up salvation for politics… just a thought. Our great Nation began to deteriorate the day they separated state from religion. I remember when school used to begin with the Lords prayer and Psalm 23. May the Lord RESTORE FAITH IN THE HEART OF THIS NATION.

  3. 11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
    12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
    13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
    14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

    Sometimes we must spell it out to someone before they really understand and ultimately believe the sin that is in their lives and that Jesus can help them.

  4. 25. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

    He is not only our resurrection from sin and spiritual death, He is also our continuing life day by day.

  5. Do We,I doubt God(Jesus)??

    Vs 40/
    JESUS saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

    41/
    Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

    I thank you Jesus that You hear me when I call on Your Name, or when any of us call on Your Name ,you are there. I love you,Jesus. You are my best friend.
    A friend sticks closer than a brother and hangs on a tree for you, and me…which was the cross on Calvary.

    What a strong Jesus.
    I believe.

  6. When Mary arrived and saw Jesus, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died.” When Jesus saw her weeping and saw the other people wailing with her, a deep anger welled up within him, and he was deeply troubled. (‭John‬ ‭11‬:‭32-33‬ NLT)

    What caused JESUS to be angry, that he allowed such emotion to take over. It’s not that Martha, and Mary had not ever seen JESUS perform any miracles. Perhaps it was the feeling of great loss, of the one you care deeply for, the one you love. Jesus felt the pain and sorrow for the loss of humanity, his very own(you and I).

    Jesus wept. (‭John‬ ‭11‬:‭35‬ KJV)

  7. KEEP BELIEVING

    40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

    GOD is very consistent and clear in regards to the supernatural. FAITH in, EXPECTATION for, and ACTION towards our desired VISION. It may not happen when we think and how we desire. However we have a PROMISE, if we BELIEVE, we shall see the GLORY of GOD.

    Whatever you face on this or any other day, whatever the signs of opposition tell you, whatever the challenges of life may present, whatever the storms may disrupt or blow in; KEEP BELIEVING and you will see the promises of GOD and even our desires in HIS will come to pass.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iBelieve
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  8. 22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

    Sometimes it takes “even now” faith to keep going in the midst of trials and storms. The kind of faith that does not give up in God. When things go south, when all seems lost. It is even now faith that can sustain you. It’s not over till God says its over. Perhaps it was that even now faith that kept Job when he lost everything including his children and all his wealth and possessions. That even now faith that caused him to bless the Lord still.

     Job 1
    21 and said, “Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither. The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of theLord.”

    The result is that you don’t stop believing in God.  We never know what God is going to do and or resurrect to His glory and honor

    Jesus’ reply to Martha was this:
    23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

    24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

    25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

    Thank you Jesus!  Even now you are still Lord of all and You reign.  To God be the glory 

  9. What frustrates Jesus.

    John 11:33 (Amplified Bible – AMP)
    33 When Jesus saw her sobbing, and the Jews who came with her [also] sobbing, He was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. [He chafed in spirit and sighed and was disturbed.]

    John 11:33 (Young’s Literal Translation of the Holy Bible – YL)
    33 Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, did groan in the spirit, and troubled himself, and he said,

    John 11:33 (Wuest – The New Testament: An Expanded Translation)
    33 Then Jesus, when He saw her weeping audibly and the Jews who had come with her, weeping audibly, was moved with indignation in His spirit, and deeply troubled himself,

    Jesus was not a happy camper. Here he had invested time in all three of his friends. It is very possible that this Mary is the same Mary from Magdalene who was forgiven of adultery.

    It is possible that their father was the leper named Simon, who was also a Pharisee. It is also possible when studying the scripture that they had another brother named Judas who was the betrayer. Jesus was very close to, and loved this family.

    However after the many miracles he performed, his friend Lazarus dies. He knows that it is only temporary, but the lack of faith is astounding.

    Groaned means
    (Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and) [1839] ἐμβριμάομαι embrimaomai 5x Attic spelling, ejmbrimovomai, to be greatly agitated, Jn. 11:33, 38; to charge or forbid sternly or vehemently, Mt. 9:30; Mk. 1:43; to express indignation, to censure, Mk. 14:5* [1690]

    Troubled means
    (Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and) [5429] ταράσσω tarassō 17x to agitate, trouble, as water, Jn. 5:7; met. to agitate, trouble the mind; with fear, to terrify, put in consternation, Mt. 2:3; 14,26; with grief, etc., affect with grief, anxiety, etc., Jn. 12:27; 13,21; with doubt, etc., to unsettle, perplex, Acts 15:24; Gal. 1:7 [5015] See distress; disturb; trouble.

    This feeling wasn’t about the loss of his friend. Truly Lazarus was more alive than those at the funeral.

    It seems as though Jesus wept in Anger. He was still groaning knowing what was about to happen. Then he, following the leading of the Father, spoke out “Lazarus come forth!”

    Then Lazarus surrounded by the glory, and splendor of paradise felt his spirit ejected from Beulah land and suddenly his earthly body breathed a quick rush. He was alive and now living in this cursed world once more.

    The people rejoiced, and many believed but Lazarus knew what had happened.

    What frustrates Jesus is when those who are alive act more dead than the one in the grave.

    Instead speak to self and say self! Come forth! I loose you from the bondages of death and let you go!

    Jesus wept, because the people slept.

  10. 2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)
    This verse reminded me of the song “Albaster Box”. God knows what we are going thru all we have to do is put our trust in him. Remember today is new day yesterday is gone so make good choices today.

  11. 21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

    22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

    23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

    How many times have we asked God, how could you let this happen in my my life? Or to someone else? We think to ourselves if God had just done something in that moment then that bad circumstance would have never happened.

    But this where we need to believe and trust God through whatever storm we are going through in our life, because his plans are bigger than our plans. we have to remember the God we serve and how big our God really is.

    He is omnipotent and all knowing, he knows what is gonna happen to us, in all of our lives. He has big plans for you, but you just can’t see what you are if you look with your fleshy. But if you believe in God and let him give spiritual vision for your life, then you can see why you are going though what you are going through. Just trust in God, he will take care of you.

  12. 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

    Amen! Those people that we know who are dead spiritually God can bring them to life as long as they believe, its not impossible because everyone was given a measure of faith.

  13. 50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

    51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

    52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

    This high priest was prophecing without even realising what he was doing. he spoke two things: first that Jesus would die for the nation and secondly that He would gather together the children of God that was scattered abroad. Jerusalem currently is one of the most diverse countries in the world and its population has risen steadily since the end of the Six day war. We also know that a few days after this prophecy Jesus did die for the nations and now through him we can be saved!

  14. 3, “Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.”
    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.”
    6, “When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.”
    17, “Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.”
    39, “Jesus said, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.”
    40, “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?”

    We are a “right now” kind of people, and it’s hard sometimes to wait for something to happen. Yes, God can do it “right now,” and sometimes we have to wait for God to do it. During these times, we must have FAITH, BELIEF, and TRUST in the One (JESUS) who is able to make it happen.
    This reminds me of the scriptures found in Isaiah 55:8-9. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

    Just remember: GOD is GREATER than any situation in our life, and His timing is always on time. He deserves the GLORY due unto His Name.

  15. John 11:40 Then Jesus said did I not tell you that if you believe you will see the glory of God. So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said. Father I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here that they may believe that you sent me.

  16. 21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

    22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

    23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

    No matter how big the storm in our life, we must always put our trust in The Lord! God knows what he’s doing, and he has a plan for each and every one of us.

    For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11‬ KJV)

  17. 28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

    29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

    This jumped out to me that the Master called for Mary. What a privilege we should each long for:
    Martha complained about her sister Mary once because she sat at Jesus’s feet and did not help her in serving the meal. She longed to be close to him & hear his word. No wonder he called her to him in her time of mourning. Jesus knows our needs and we are his children…he will comfort us and strengthen us. Seek him and you will find him, and in your time of need he will come looking for you.

  18. iLove to eat the Word

    “Dedicated to Fulfilling Prophecy”
    51And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; 52And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. 53Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

    After the High Priest prophesied, the Pharisees were convinced that killing Jesus was the will of God. The truth of the matter is that they were right. It was the will of God for Jesus to be crucified. The only problem with the Pharisees whole concept was that they thought God’s will was to remove the “evil doer, sabbath breaker”.

    From the day the prophecy went forth, they tried to kill Jesus to fulfill the prophetic word of the High Priest. That’s crazy dedication to a prophecy that they were on the wrong side of.

  19. “If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.” They were so fearful of losing their power that they would do whatever it took. The word of God (Jesus) is true and all shall come to pass, as such the deceiver (satan) is so fearful of losing his power that he is doing whatever he can to stop it. The deceiver is the true enemy and has limited power, which one that believes and prays has more power; “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  20. 40 Jesus responded, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believe?” (NLT)

    This verse makes me chuckle a little, seeing Jesus say, “Didn’t I tell you…?” Almost like, are you really questioning me, just be patient and let me show you. Trials in life may get us down but don’t be discouraged. We must wait on the Lord and rest assured that He’s got it taken care of. Just believe and He will never fall short but surely see you through; just believe and He will reveal His glory and promises unto you!

  21. He didn’t just die for me but for you and others. Thankyou Jesus

    And not only for that nation, but to bring together and unite all the children of God scattered around the world. (‭John‬ ‭11‬:‭52‬ NLT)

  22. Savior

    49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

    50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

    51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

    52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

    53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

    Caiaphas was among them that counseled to kill Jesus, yet in the midst of their talking Jesus prophesied through Him. They wouldn’t hear Him in the temple or heed His miracles, but in the midst of deciding to kill Him, Jesus speaks through their leader to declare He is the Savior for Israel. They tried to deny Him but declared Him as Messiah instead; they tried to stop Him but ushered Him along in His plan to be the Lamb to save them. Jesus is in control no matter the situation or person.

    Psalm 48:9-14
    9 We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.

    10 According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.

    11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.

    12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.

    13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.

    14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

  23. Position and power

    John 11:48
    If we let Him go on like this, all men will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.”

    They were more worried about their position and power than the work of the prophet, in this case, God. Ironically the high priest offers up jesus as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. It was his duty to offer up the sacrifice for the people each year. Against his knowledge, he offered up the savior of the world.

  24. v45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

    May GOD help us to have a heart that can believe the preaching of the word.
    GOD IS FAITHFUL and sometimes HE may not answer when we think HE should, but HE WILL ANSWER in HIS perfect time.
    Let’s believe and have faith in the ONE who has the power over death .

    v40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee,that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shoulders see the glory of God?

    iHave Faith
    iBelieve
    iRepent
    iPray
    I praise
    iRejoice

  25. 34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
    35 Jesus wept.
    36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

    As I grew up the joke was what was the shortest verse in the bible. It was. Jesus wept. But this has so much more meaning than that. Jesus loved Lazarus as a brother and a close friend. He wept over him. The fleshly Jesus wept over losing a friend.
    I have heard many people say Jesus never felt anything. If this were true then why does it at that he wept over a friend dying. And he said let this cup pass from me. He is God robed in flesh to conquer sin and death to give us the eternal life. He is my God whom I serve.

  26. 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.

    Mary and Martha were of great faith they new Jesus could heal Lazarus.

    Faith is what Jesus wants us to have, I glorify you Lord in all your good works.

  27. What ever storm or situation in our life, we have to put it all in gods hand and surrender; And let him take the wheel.

  28. 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.

    Amen! Hallelujah! Everything that happens to us wether it’s good or bad it’s to glorify Jesus no matter the circumstance everything is for the honor and glory of Jesus.

    And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

  29. 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

    Hope in the middle of darkness. Thou he be dead if he believes, he shall live. No matter what the situation, even in my personal life being in the lowest of low, feeling like there is no hope for me, all it took was a little belief of hope that things could change, a little hope every thing could be different, and in a instant God can tranform a willing heart.

    A thing to keep in mind that even when we might discard of people in our lives as never being able to reach salvation, God has a message if hope, “If you could only believe!”

  30. Jesus responded, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believe?” (‭John‬ ‭11‬:‭40‬ NLT)

    Lord I believe you can do anything… I can’t wait to see all the wonderful things he is about to do. My God is amazing!

  31. Misunderstanding

    12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. 13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. 14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

    In life we are going to run into times where we don’t understand others and others don’t understand us. It is at this time when we need to remember the way JESUS treated his friend during their misunderstanding. We should speak clearly do that the miscommunication becomes clear.

    Lord help us all to be effective communicators so that we don’t offend our brothers and sisters in Christ.

  32. Jesus wept I think is the shortest verse in the Bible . verse 11 : 35 Because he loves us he has compassion Thank you Jesus I Love you too.

  33. And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

    We all come from different walks of life. This is one of the reasons why I love our church. We are made up of many different cultures and people. Yet we serve the same God. We are all equal in God eyes.
