And Jesus wept...raged

Jesus was groaning and troubled, then wept at Lazarus's tomb. They say the original Greek
words for troubled suggests a rage. Raging against death . I never heard this take on it
till recently and it IMHO brings out the humanity of Christ in a very special way. John Calvin
says that he approached the tomb as one going forth to do battle.

are always false.
