Plot to Kill the Risen Lazarus
John 11:43, 12:9-11
1-18-22, When the wicked are determined not to believe the Gospel of the Lord Jesus, there's no end to the crimes that they're driven. Lazarus was alive and the evidence of his resurrection was so clear that the Sadducees and Pharisees could not resist planning on killing him again. Because they preached 'THERE IS NO RESURRECTION!' (Acts 23:8) They could neither deny it, nor prevent its effect on the people. They were determined to kill the Lord Jesus and now also Lazarus that the number of His followers might be lessened.
Unbelief stops at no crime; Lazarus was innocent yet they deliberately plotted murder rather than believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Never was there a more unreasonable madness and rage [2 Thessalonians 3:2]. Christ was accused of breaking the sabbath and the sin of blasphemy by claiming He was God [John 10:33]; but what had Lazarus done? [John 11:47] While no charge is brought against Lazarus, his life is a witness to the divinity of Him Whom they have condemned to death. The words do not mean that they came to a final decision to put him to death, but that they took counsel on the matter and watched their opportunity. Commentaries: Ellicott, Barnes', Matthew Poole
