This chapter introduces Jesus as Prince of Life.
John 11:53 (KJV)
(53) “Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.”
This event is the miracle that sealed Jesus’ death. This climactic miracle of raising Lazarus from the dead was Jesus’ public evidence of the truth of His great claim, “I am the Resurrection and the Life.” Death is the great horror which sin has produced. http://ref.ly/Ro5.12 and http://ref.ly/Jm1.15.
