John 12:1 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

THE SUPPER AT BETHANY,

1 ) "Then Jesus six days before the passover," (ho oun lesous pro eks hemeron tou pascha) "Then Jesus six days before the time of the Passover feast," taking us back to Joh 11:55, when the Passover lamb was slain and eaten, to symbolize Jesus, the true Passover, who was sacrificed soon thereafter for the whole world, 1Co 5:7; 1Ti 2:5-6.

2) "Came to Bethany," (elthen eis Bethanian) "Came into Bethany, by his own choice," Joh 11:1, from where He had retreated into the wilderness area of Ephraim, some 15 miles to the north, a few weeks earlier, Joh 11:54.

3) "Where Lazarus was," (hopou hen Lazaros) "Where Lazarus was residing," after Jesus had raised him from the dead, as recounted Joh 11:38-44. He is believed to have lodged in the home of Lazarus and his sisters, each night the following week, until the night of His betrayal.

4) "Which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead." (hon egeiren ek nekron lesous) "Whom Jesus had raised out of or away from the dead," from dead corpses, Joh 12:9. For he had been dead for some four days before Jesus approached his tomb, in the presence of many witnesses, to call him forth, Joh 11:21; Joh 11:32; Joh 11:37; Joh 11:39-46.
