The shortest verse in the Bible is when it is said, outside the tomb of Lazarus, that Jesus wept – John 11:35.
This is not only the shortest verse in the entire Bible; it is also one of the most mysterious. Why did Jesus weep?
Christ was the one with the greatest reason to weep. The reasons were so many. For which of those did he weep now? Was it because of what he knew that those around him did not? Was it for the sins of the world? Was it for the unbelief of those around him?
But perhaps he wept for none of those reasons. Perhaps he simply wept out of sorrow and grief for his friend Lazarus. Perhaps it was simply in fulfilment of what had been written of him, that he was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief (Isa. 53:4).
In those tears that fell down Christ’s face were comprehended every tear that you have ever cried, every sorrow that you have ever felt. He has cried your tears, he has felt your pain. He wept so that one day there would be no more weeping.
We all weep at times. But there is someone who understands. When next you weep, know that your tears are always mingled with the love of Christ. And as you weep, you are being washed in the compassionate mercy and love of Jesus.
And one day, when we understand the vast magnitude of the heart of Jesus, we will understand the mystery of his tears that day outside the tomb of Lazarus.

The shortest verse in the Bible.: And Jesus wept. BY. Dr. Gonzalez Have you ever thought of the miracles in your life, of prayers answered, obstacles that were overcame, a voice you thought that came from above, a right to show you the way, and dreams that came true? Have you ever felt the spirit guide you to things , answers, and to protection you never hopefully thought would come? And then one day you wished others would be able to be blessed in the same way, and mostly to those you witness to? Perhaps you feel that they have no clue of the importance of you testimony. Would that make you shade tears of love and of wishing that you wish they knew of they would also try for such blessings. I cry almost daily. Thus one of the reasons maybe why our savior cried. Maybe WI wished for mankind to know him better, follow him, do his Will and get to know. And to believe in him, so that a path. Towards internal life would be easier. Tha is how I understand the tears of our savior. Dr. Gonzalez, when I read from you, from Dr. Ford. I can too cry. You are a testimony of how men can be guided by the holy spirit, because you are guided by the holy spirit. I can feel , whenever I read from you. One day. I will join your team. This is the lost massage. This is how we need to learn. You are great teachers of our times. You remind me of Paul. And others Amen. Love in Christ Pauline lubega
