John 11:43 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "And when he had thus spoken," (kai tauta eipon) ''And when he had said these things," or had prayed and spoken these words to His Father, certifying His Sonship from the Father, apart from which no one could be saved, Joh 3:17; Joh 8:24, Gal 4:4, Act 4:12.

2) "He cried with a loud voice," (phone megale ekraugasen) "He cried out (aloud) with a great voice,' a strong voice, as a shout to a multitude, that all the witnesses might clearly hear His voice, what He said. It was the voice of an imperative command, for death to surrender to life, and for defeat to turn to victory, as expressed, 1Co 15:55.

3) "Lazarus, come forth.'' (Lazare deuro, ekso) "Lazarus come out,'' come out of and away from the grave! Even as all men shall one day come forth, Joh 5:28-29; Joh 12:32. Jesus wept and groaned, as a man, yet He spoke as a God, with royal and regal authority, such as becomes kingly majesty. And His subject, Lazarus, obeyed His command, as death trembled at and released God's property to His Son, Heb 2:9; Heb 2:15, Rev 1:18. Some have conjectured in faith "if He had not called the name Lazarus, all the righteous dead may have joined him in coming forth.''
