John 11:24 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "Martha said unto him," (legei auto he Martha) "Martha replied to him," accepting the general premise of a certain future resurrection.

2) "I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection," (oida hoti anastesetai en te anastasei) "I realize that he will rise up in the hour of the resurrection," in the distant future. She had perhaps been reminded of this many times by the devout, mourning Jewish women, during the last four days, as set forth, Job 19:23-27; Dan 12:2.

3) "At the last day." (en te eschate hemera) "In the last or final day," based on both the Old Testament Scriptures and what He had already taught her on previous occasions, Joh 5:28-29; Joh 6:39-40; Joh 6:51; Joh 12:48.

Martha was anxious and impulsive however, desiring to have him back from the cold form in the grave, alive, for a warm embrace from him, now, a desire of so many immediately after death of a loved one, for just a few more kind words and another dear embrace.
