When Jesus Wept

In John 11, we find Jesus summoned to the home of Mary and Martha. Their brother Lazarus was sick and died and was already in the tomb four days by the time Jesus arrived. Jesus entered a house full of tears. Mary was weeping. Their friends who came to pay their respects were also weeping. Jesus discovered a place flooded with grief and sadness. We’re told, as the NRSV renders it, that Jesus “was greatly disturbed in spirit and deeply moved.” It’s actually stronger in the Greek. “Greatly disturbed in spirit” is really more like anger.
