John 11:3

Context
11:3 So the sisters sent a message 1  to Jesus, 2  “Lord, look, the one you love is sick.”

John 11:5

Context
11:5 (Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.) 3 

John 11:36

Context
11:36 Thus the people who had come to mourn 4  said, “Look how much he loved him!”

1 tn The phrase “a message” is not in the Greek text but is implied. Direct objects in Greek were often omitted when clear from context.

2 tn Grk “to him, saying”; the referent (Jesus) is specified in the translation for clarity.

3 sn This is a parenthetical note by the author. It was necessary for the author to reaffirm Jesus’ love for Martha and her sister and Lazarus here because Jesus’ actions in the following verse appear to be contradictory.

4 tn Or “the Judeans”; Grk “the Jews.” Here the phrase refers to the friends, acquaintances, and relatives of Lazarus or his sisters who had come to mourn, since the Jewish religious authorities are specifically mentioned as a separate group in John 11:46-47. See also the notes on the phrase “the Jewish leaders” in v. 8 and “the Jewish people of the region” in v. 19, as well as the notes on the word “people” in vv. 31, 33.
