Jesus Wept Meaning - Shortest Verse in Bible
Is Jesus ever wept or crying? This question appeared in my mind. When I tried to answer, I found Jesus ever crying: the verse “Jesus Wept” (John 11:35 - King James Version) through internet. Bible study acknowledged it as the Bible shortest verse. In the Bible, Jesus cried when He knew that His Best Friend Lazarus was died.
Meaning of Jesus Wept
I am not priest or clergy. What is the meaning about shortest verse in the Holy Bible? The most important meaning for me is Jesus crying for His Best friend Lazarus. In the Bible old Greek scripture, it is written: edakrusen ho Iesous that mean Jesus shed tear.
Lazarus should be a kind of friend who touches the Jesus heart so deeply. Jesus was resurrecting him from stone tomb. What a wonderful bless from God that human ever got in Christianity history. Now the promise of resurrection is deserve to all of us. We should have “Lazarus” friendship qualities in our life. In modern life, is Jesus ever wept for us? Is Jesus our best friend?
Lazarus Love Quality
The deepest reason why Jesus wept for Lazarus because he has love and best friendship quality with Jesus. Lazarus touched Jesus heart. Lazarus has faith quality that impressed Jesus. I do not have theological knowledge as epistemological explanation. This is based on my interpretation. Jesus ever mention that God and human relation is love friendship relation. I think Jesus made Lazarus alive again as the lesson learned for us about true friendship meaning. God is our best friendship after all.

Friend Wept Meaning
I remember old song lyric, “I cried a tears, you wiped it dry” from Anne Murray. The song title “You needed me”. We need someone to wipe our tears. We need a great friend like the friendship of Lazarus. Jesus not only cried for him but also resurrects his life. I need a friend wept for me. I believe Jesus wept for you. Everybody needs a friend wept.
Reflection Meaning of Jesus Wept in Song
Sometimes life is not easy. When we bear heavy burden, we hide our cry inside. We do not want somebody know about it. Crying is ashamed for some people, but not for Jesus. I am a man and Jesus thought me that shed a tears is expression of deep love. I am not shame to cry now. Even God crying, isn’t He? Crying with God will release our ill feeling.
What a Friend we have in Jesus
Lazarus is truth fact about what a friend we have in Jesus. Maybe we feel that our life is dead, but Jesus able to resurrection our faith. Maybe you need to recover your life, job, married, relationship, and all heavy burdens you have. Bring it to Jesus and He will make a resurrection to renew your life and soul.
Good luck, good health, and God bless us.
