Links in John 11 and 12

rope

John links his stories together in interesting ways.

 John 10

 “The thief comes in to steal, kill and destroy. 10:10

  • Compare with v. 31, 39; 11:8-9

“The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep.”  10:11(also 15, 17)

  • Compare with 11:50; 12:7-8; 12:23ff
  • “The sheep listen to his voice.” 10:3, 4, 8, 16.
  • Compare with 10:25-31; 11:43-44

 John 11

This Mary…was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair…”   11:2

  • Compare with 12:1-8

The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face…” 11:44

  • Compare with 19:38-20:9

“You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.”  11:50

  • Compare with John 3:16

Note: This is the John style.  The Letter of I John has a circular structure where several themes are stated, repeated and developed over the book, like a rope woven of strands.

Tools and Translations

Due to a recent comment on the article “Picking a Translation”, I have decided to add here a couple of useful resources:

ESV Study bible – I have come to use the ESV a lot, as it is both readable and a more literal translation.  Lots of friends are sold on the Study Bible, but I have not as yet taken the plunge.  Most often I print an english copy of the text from the ESV for the colored pencil treatment.  http://www.esv.org/

www.biblia.com is a great new website with several translations. I’d like them to have a notes free version of the ESV, but otherwise it is nicely done.

There are OT and NT bibliographies at Denver Seminary’s web site – this is excellent.  http://www.denverseminary.edu/resources/the-denver-journal/articles03/0100/0101.php/#commentaries  There is an Annotated O. T. Bibliography and a N. T. Exegesis Bibliography.
