John 11:34 Meaning and Commentary

John 11:34

And said, where have ye laid him?
&c.] This he might say as man, though he, as the omniscient God, knew where he was laid; and that it might appear there was no juggle and contrivance between him, and the relations of the deceased; and to raise some expectation of what he intended to do; and to draw the Jews thither, that they might be witnesses of the miracle he was about to work.

They say unto him;
That is, Martha and Mary,

Lord, come and see;
it being but a little way off.
