Many Jews believe in Jesus (Jn 11:45-11:45)

“Therefore,

Many of the Jews

Who had come

With Mary

Had seen

What Jesus did.

They believed in him.”

Πολλοὶ οὖν ἐκ τῶν Ἰουδαίων, οἱ ἐλθόντες πρὸς τὴν Μαριὰμ καὶ θεασάμενοι ὃ ἐποίησεν, ἐπίστευσαν εἰς αὐτόν·

John uniquely indicated that many of the Jews (Πολλοὶ οὖν ἐκ τῶν Ἰουδαίων), who had come with Mary (οἱ ἐλθόντες πρὸς τὴν Μαριὰμ), had seen (καὶ θεασάμενοι) what Jesus had done (ὃ ἐποίησεν).  They believed in him (ἐπίστευσαν εἰς αὐτόν).  Thus, this sign of the raising of Lazarus from the dead led to the belief of many more Jewish people from Jerusalem.  However, they were probably friends of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus.  Would you believe in the power of someone who made a man rise from the dead?
