John 11:5

Context
11:5 (Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.) 1 

John 11:3

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

1 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.

2 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.

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