1) "Then when Jesus came," (elthon oun) "Then when they had come," both Jesus and His band of loyal church disciples whom He had called and chosen, who had been with Him from the beginning, Joh 15:16; Joh 15:27.

2) "He found that he had lain in the grave four days already." (ho lesous heuren auton tessaras ede hemeras echonta en to mnemeio) "Jesus found him (Lazarus) who had been four days already in the tomb," indicating that no one had passed the word until they arrived in the area of Bethany. According to Jewish custom, burial occurred on the day of death, allowing at least four days to have elapsed from when Martha and Mary sent word to Jesus of the critical illness of Lazarus, Joh 11:1-3; Joh 11:39.
