John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
John 11:5

Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.
] Not only with an everlasting love, a love of complacency and delight, an unchangeable one, and which never varies, nor will ever end, with which he loves all his people alike; but with a very great human affection, and which was very singular and peculiar to them: these were the intimate friends, and familiar acquaintance of Christ, whom he often visited, at whose house he frequently was when in those parts; they were very hospitable to him; they kindly received him into their houses, and generously entertained him, and which he returned in love to them: hence Nonnus paraphrases the words,

``Jesus loved the women, (filoxeinouv) , "who were lovers of hospitality", by the law of kindness.''
