The glory of God (Jn 11:40-1:40)

“Jesus said to Martha.

‘Did I not tell you

That if you believe,

You would see

The glory of God?’”

λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ Ἰησοῦς Οὐκ εἶπόν σοι ὅτι ἐὰν πιστεύσῃς ὄψῃ τὴν δόξαν τοῦ Θεοῦ;

John uniquely indicated that Jesus (ὁ Ἰησοῦς) said to Martha (λέγει αὐτῇ) that had he not told her (Οὐκ εἶπόν σοι) to believe (ὅτι ἐὰν πιστεύσῃς), so that she might see (ὄψῃ) the glory of God (τὴν δόξαν τοῦ Θεοῦ).  To bring Lazarus back to life would be a manifestation of God’s glory.  They would see the splendor of God.  This was a hint that something big was going to happen.  Do you believe in the glory of God?
