The story of Lazarus. I found it interesting especially after our conversation regarding Jesus clearing the Temple and where or not he was angry. Here in this story in verse 33 When Jesus saw her weeping and saw the other people wailing with her, a deep anger welled up within him, and he was deeply troubled.
Here this passage specifically speaks to Jesus having a deep anger that welled up within him. Yet, I'm not really sure who he was angry at or what he was angry about. This passage follows Mary coming to him weeping and stating if he had been there Lazarus wouldn't have died. Yet I know he had a great love for Mary and Martha, so I'm not sure.
Another thing I had never noticed before is in verse 51
49 Caiaphas, who was high priest at that time, said, “You don’t know what you’re talking about!
50 You don’t realize that it’s better for you that one man should die for the people than for the whole nation to be destroyed.”51 He did not say this on his own; as high priest at that time he was led to prophesy that Jesus would die for the entire nation.
I would have never thought of Caiaphas being led to prophesy... Interesting...
