Martha then went to speak privately with her sister, saying “The Teacher is asking for you.” Mary immediately got up to go to him. Jesus was still where Martha had met him just outside the village. The Jewish leaders who had been consoling Mary noticed how quickly she had left, so they followed her. They thought she was going to cry at the tomb.
When Mary saw Jesus, she said “Lord, my brother wouldn’t have died if you had been here!”
Jesus was distraught when he saw that she and the others with her were crying. He asked “Where have you placed him?”
They answered “Come with us and see.”
The Jewish leaders said “Look! He must have loved him deeply!” But others said “Couldn’t someone who healed a blind man have prevented this man’s death?”
