"I am the resurrection" those were Jesus' words to Martha. Jesus knew that Lazarus would die and he would raise him from the dead to show God's glory. Yet, He wept and was deeply troubled. (33, 35 and 38). It showed not only his sorrow at the death of Lazarus as well as his sorrow for his friends' suffering. (ESV study Bible notes). I like the way John showed us Jesus' humanity. He loved Lazarus and his sisters.
This passage reminds me of the humanity of Jesus and that He understands how I feel and hurt for lost loved ones.
