John 11:11 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "These things said he:” (tauta eipen) "He said these things," about light and darkness, after His disciples had impulsively reminded Him of the hate of the Jews and their continual resolve to kill Him, Joh 11:8; Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18; Joh 8:37; Joh 8:40-59.

2) "And after that he saith unto them," (kai meta touto legei autois) "And after this he says directly to them," after He had led them to reflect that the times and opportunities of life's services must be rendered while both life and opportunity confronts one, Joh 4:34; Joh 5:19; Joh 5:36; Joh 17:4; 1Co 15:58.

3) "Our friend Lazarus sleepeth;” (Lazaros ho philos hemon kekoimetai) ''Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep," referring to the "sleep of death," of the body, not of the soul, Mat 9:24; Mat 27:52; Act 7:60; 1Co 15:6; 1Co 15:51.

4) "But I go that I may awake him out of sleep." (alla poreuomai hina eksupniso auton) "But I am going (to him) in order that I may awaken him, out of sleep." The same power will one day awaken all death-sleepers to an hour of accountability before God, for every personal choice and accountable deed of life, Joh 5:28-29; 1Th 4:13,17; Php_3:21].
