Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 11:11-16.


John 11:16

_ _ Thomas, ... called Didymus — or “the twin.”

_ _ Let us also go, that we may die with him — lovely spirit, though tinged with some sadness, such as reappears at John 14:5, showing the tendency of this disciple to take the dark view of things. On a memorable occasion this tendency opened the door to downright, though but momentary, unbelief (John 20:25). Here, however, though alleged by many interpreters there is nothing of the sort. He perceives clearly how this journey to Judea will end, as respects his Master, and not only sees in it peril to themselves, as they all did, but feels as if he could not and cared not to survive his Master’s sacrifice to the fury of His enemies. It was that kind of affection which, living only in the light of its Object, cannot contemplate, or has no heart for life, without it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 11:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 11:16

Thomas in Hebrew, as Didymus in Greek, signifies a twin. With him — With Jesus, whom he supposed the Jews would kill. It seems to be the language of despair.
