Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 11:47-54

_ _ What do we? for this man doeth many miracles — “While we trifle, ‘this man,’ by His ‘many miracles,’ will carry all before Him; the popular enthusiasm will bring on a revolution, which will precipitate the Romans upon us, and our all will go down in one common ruin.” What a testimony to the reality of our Lord’s miracles, and their resistless effect, from His bitterest enemies!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 11:45-57.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 11:47

What do we? — What? Believe. Yea, but death yields to the power of Christ sooner than infidelity.
