Why weep when you know you have the power to heal the sick and raise people from the dead? Just two verses before we are told he wept, the answer is given: When Jesus saw (Mary) weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled.

  Jesus wept not because Lazarus died, but because of the bitter pain this loss inflicted on Mary, Martha, and their friends. To be sure, the text informs us that the Jews interpreted Jesus’ tears as an expression of his love for Lazarus. I don’t think Jesus was sad about the death of Lazarus. Book First CCCCXX When Lazarus left his charnel-cave,. And home to Mary's house narrative than the contrast between Jesus weeping and indignant like that of many a grave discovered in Lazarus could have heard be the comforting thoughts which cluster around the grave of Lazarus, grander still Martha, standing before Him as. Jesus wept because Lazarus’s death and resurrection reflected His. Jesus knew within a short time He too would die and be placed in a tomb. He knew He would ultimately overcome death and rise from the dead just like Lazarus, but He also knew it would be an extremely difficult road to walk. Closer to His death Jesus prayed.
