THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN - Chapter 11 - Verse 15

Verse 15. I am glad, &c. The meaning of this verse may be thus expressed:

"If I had been there during his sickness, the

entreaties of his sisters and friends would have

prevailed with me to restore him to health. I

could not have refused them without appearing

to be unkind. Though a restoration to health

would have been a miracle, and sufficient to

convince you, yet the miracle of raising him

after four days dead will be far more impressive, and

on that account I rejoice that an opportunity is

thus given so strikingly to confirm your faith."


To the intent. To furnish you evidence on which you might be established in the belief that I am the Messiah.
