John 11:30-57 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
30 Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but 1was still in the place where Martha met Him. 31 2Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and 3consoling her, when they saw that Mary got up quickly and went out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there. 32 Therefore, when Mary came where Jesus was, she saw Him, and fell at His feet, saying to Him, "4Lord, 5if You had been here, my brother would not have died." 33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and 6the Jews who came with her also weeping, He 7was deeply moved in spirit and a8was troubled, 34 and said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to Him, "Lord, come and see." 35 Jesus 9wept. 36 So 10the Jews were saying, "See how He 11loved him!" 37 But some of them said, "Could not this man, who 12opened the eyes of the blind man, bhave kept this man also from dying?" 38 So Jesus, again being deeply moved within , came to the tomb. Now it was a 13cave, and a stone was lying against it. 39 Jesus said, "Remove the stone." Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to Him, "Lord, by this time cthere will be a stench, for he has been dead 14four days." 40 Jesus said to her, "15Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?" 41 So they removed the 16stone. Then Jesus 17raised His eyes, and said, "18Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. 42 "I knew that You always hear Me; but 19because of the dpeople standing around I said it, so that they may believe that 20You sent Me." 43 When He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth." 44 The man who had died came forth, 21bound hand and foot with wrappings, and 22his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Unbind him, and let him go." 45 23Therefore many of the Jews 24who came to Mary, and 25saw what He had done, believed in Him. 46 But some of them went to the 26Pharisees and told them the things which Jesus had done.

Conspiracy to Kill Jesus

47 Therefore 27the chief priests and the Pharisees 28convened a 29council, and were saying, "What are we doing? For this man is performing many e30signs. 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 31place and our nation." 49 But one of them, 32Caiaphas, 33who was high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all, 50 nor do you take into account that 34it is expedient for you that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation not perish." 51 Now he did not say this fon his own initiative, but 35being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, 52 and not for the nation only, but in order that He might also 36gather together into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. 53 So from that day on they 37planned together to kill Him. 54 Therefore Jesus 38no longer continued to walk publicly among the Jews, but went away from there to the country near the wilderness, into a city called 39Ephraim; and there He stayed with the disciples. 55 Now 40the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the Passover 41to purify themselves. 56 So they 42were seeking for Jesus, and were saying to one another as they stood in the temple, "What do you think; that He will not come to the feast at all ?" 57 Now 43the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where He was, he was to report it, so that they might seize Him.
