Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 11:23-27.


John 11:25

_ _ Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life — “The whole power to restore, impart, and maintain life, resides in Me.” (See on John 1:4; see on John 5:21). What higher claim to supreme divinity than this grand saying can be conceived?

_ _ he that believeth in me, though ... dead ... shall he live — that is, The believer’s death shall be swallowed up in life, and his life shall never sink into death. As death comes by sin, it is His to dissolve it; and as life flows through His righteousness, it is His to communicate and eternally maintain it (Romans 5:21). The temporary separation of soul and body is here regarded as not even interrupting, much less impairing, the new and everlasting life imparted by Jesus to His believing people.

_ _ Believest thou this? — Canst thou take this in?

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 11:17-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 11:25

l am the resurrection — Of the dead. And the life — Of the living. He that believeth in me, though he die, yet shall he live — In life everlasting.
