Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 11:20-22

_ _ Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him — true to the energy and activity of her character, as seen in Luke 10:38-42. (See on Luke 10:38-42).

_ _ but Mary sat ... in the house — equally true to her placid character. These undesigned touches not only charmingly illustrate the minute historic fidelity of both narratives, but their inner harmony.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 11:17-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 11:20

Mary sat in the house — Probably not hearing what was said.
