Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 11:39-44.


John 11:41

_ _ Jesus lifted up his eyes — an expression marking His calm solemnity. (Compare John 17:1).

_ _ Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me — rather, “heardest Me,” referring to a specific prayer offered by Him, probably on intelligence of the case reaching Him (John 11:3, John 11:4); for His living and loving oneness with the Father was maintained and manifested in the flesh, not merely by the spontaneous and uninterrupted outgoing of Each to Each in spirit, but by specific actings of faith and exercises of prayer about each successive case as it emerged. He prayed (says Luthardt well) not for what He wanted, but for the manifestation of what He had; and having the bright consciousness of the answer in the felt liberty to ask it, and the assurance that it was at hand, He gives thanks for this with a grand simplicity before performing the act.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 11:33-44.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 11:41

Jesus lifted up his eyes — Not as if he applied to his Father for assistance. There is not the least show of this. He wrought the miracle with an air of absolute sovereignty, as the Lord of life and death. But it was as if he had said, I thank thee, that by the disposal of thy providence, thou hast granted my desire, in this remarkable opportunity of exerting my power, and showing forth thy praise.
