Scripture:- John 11:1-45
Topic:- How Many Times Jesus Wept In The Bible
Text:- John 11:35
Jesus wept three times during His short three-year ministry; how many times did He weep between the ages of twelve and thirty? Was Jesus too emotional?
A. He wept three times that we know of during His three-year public life:
1. In John 11:1-4; 32-45,
2. Jesus Weeps Over Jerusalem. See Luke 13:34, 19:41-44.
3. In Hebrews 5:7.
B. Was Jesus Too Emotional?
There is no evidence that He was too emotional. Although He was a Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered.
The Bible does not give to us details of these years of our Lord’s life, however, many Bible Scholars will point out that since many of the Psalms are Prophetic about the Life of the Messiah. See Psalm 69.
Oh Lord God, help me to remember Your weeping for me and thereby love You totally henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
