John 11:35 Meaning and Commentary

John 11:35

Jesus wept.
] As he was going along to the grave, see ( John 11:28 ) ; as he was meditating upon the state of his friend Lazarus, the distress his two sisters were in, and the greater damnation that would befall the Jews then present, who, notwithstanding the miracle, would not believe in him. This shows him to be truly and really man, subject to like passions, only without sin.

John 11:35 In-Context

33 When Jesus saw her sobbing and the Jews with her sobbing, a deep anger welled up within him.
34 He said, "Where did you put him?"
35 Now Jesus wept.
36 The Jews said, "Look how deeply he loved him."
37 Others among them said, "Well, if he loved him so much, why didn't he do something to keep him from dying? After all, he opened the eyes of a blind man."
