JOHN 11:45-57 NOR DO YOU CONSIDER THAT IT IS EXPEDIENT FOR US THAT ONE MAN SHOULD DIE FOR THE PEOPLE
In this section of Scripture we see the result of the Pharisee’s hatred for Jesus. He has raised Lazarus from the dead and instead of them being happy for Lazarus and excited about what Jesus had done, they decide that this is the last straw and they want to kill him for all His miracles. It is amazing how people will react when their authority, prestige and power are threatened. These Pharisees cannot let Jesus take these away from them. They have to be the great and mighty Pharisees. We see some believe, but they are like those in Chapter 6 who after being fed with 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread go looking for Jesus again the next day and Jesus says to them you are not looking for me for the right reason, you just want more food. They like Jesus as long as He heals them, or feeds them, or satisfies some need they have, just like most of us today. We like that Jesus, but we don’t like the Jesus of the Bible, Him you can keep. We like His miracles; we just don’t like His message. Just like they decide to kill Him, many today want to wipe out all remnants of Jesus in our society. They don’t want to hear that name or even the name of God which is who Jesus is.
