Then Jesus, deeply moved again, came to the tomb; it was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

Tools specific to Jhn 11:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:39

Tools specific to Jhn 11:40

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:40

Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?"

I knew that thou hearest me always, but I have said this on account of the people standing by, that they may believe that thou didst send me."

When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Laz'arus, come out."

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:45

Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what he did, believed in him;

Tools specific to Jhn 11:46

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:46

but some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.

Tools specific to Jhn 11:47

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:47

So the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered the council, and said, "What are we to do? For this man performs many signs.

Tools specific to Jhn 11:48

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:48

If we let him go on thus, every one will believe in him, and the Romans will come and destroy both our holy place and our nation."

Tools specific to Jhn 11:49

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:49

But one of them, Ca'iaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all;

Tools specific to Jhn 11:50

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:50

you do not understand that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation should not perish."

Tools specific to Jhn 11:51

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:51

He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation,

Tools specific to Jhn 11:52

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:52

and not for the nation only, but to gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad.

Tools specific to Jhn 11:53

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:53

So from that day on they took counsel how to put him to death.

Tools specific to Jhn 11:54

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:54

They were looking for Jesus and saying to one another as they stood in the temple, "What do you think? That he will not come to the feast?"

Tools specific to Jhn 11:57

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 11:57

Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that if any one knew where he was, he should let them know, so that they might arrest him.
