John 12:10-11

Context
12:10 So the chief priests planned to kill Lazarus too, 1  12:11 for on account of him many of the Jewish people from Jerusalem 2  were going away and believing in Jesus.

1 sn According to John 11:53 the Jewish leadership had already planned to kill Jesus. This plot against Lazarus apparently never got beyond the planning stage, however, since no further mention is made of it by the author.

2 tn Grk “the Jews.” Here the phrase refers to the residents of Jerusalem who had heard about the resurrection of Lazarus and as a result were embracing Jesus as Messiah. See also the note on the phrase “Judeans” in v. 9.
