John 11:35 Jesus wept

Jesus loved Lazarus. He knew that Lazarus was dead before He came to visit with Mary and Martha. Lazarus had been dead four days. Lazarus sister Mary is the woman that anointed Jesus’ feet with ointment and wiped them with her hair. There was great mourning over the loss of their brother. Jesus wept with the sisters in great sadness with them. He could not be with them and not share in their sorrow. In the body of Christ, if one part suffers, every part suffers with it. Jesus knows the day will be victorious over death. However, the time of celebration is not yet come.

John 11:26, 43-44 26And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 43And 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.

This miracle was so powerful that the Pharisees were enraged. After this miracle, the Pharisees agreed Jesus must die and they commanded that if any man knew where Jesus was, they must tell them.

John 12:27-30

27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. 28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. 29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. 30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
