before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus
was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
12:2 There they made him a supper and Martha served and Lazarus was
one of them that sat at the table with him.
12:3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly and
anointed the feet of Emmanuel and wiped his feet with her hair and the
house was filled with the odor of the ointment.

12:4 Then said one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which
should betray him,
12:5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence and given
to the poor?
John 12:6 This he said, not that he cared for
the poor, but because he was a thief and had the bag and bare what was
12:6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was
a thief and had the bag.(those
who supported Emmanuel's work back then who were able to contribute
money, gave it to the treasurer
of the disciples,
who was Judas, who carried
it in a pouch, a purse).and bare what
was put therein.

has she kept this.

and do need help from you. He's saying learn from me how
to help them. One way is to turn their minds to God, if they
are willing. Why
just 'if they are willing'?
12:9 Much people of the Jews
therefore knew that he was there and they came not for Emmanuel's sake
only, but that they might see Lazarus also,
he had raised from the dead.

our own greedy, selfish and controlling purposes; what did Emmanuel think

went away and believed on Emmanuel.
could see their contol waning
and their greedy pockets not being as full.
12:12-18 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when
they heard that Emmanuel was coming to Jerusalem, Took branches of palm
trees and went forth to meet him and cried, Hosanna,
is the King of Israel
that comes in the name of the Lord.
And Emmanuel, when he had found a young ass,
sat thereon. As it is written, Fear not, daughter of Sion,
behold, your King comes, sitting on an ass's colt.(Matthew
21:5-7). These things understood not his disciples
at the first, but when Emmanuel was glorified.(resurrected),
then remembered they that these things were written of him and that they
had done these things unto him. The people therefore that was with him
when he called Lazarus
out of his grave and raised him from the dead bare record. For this cause
the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
John 12:19 The Pharisees therefore said among
themselves, Perceive you how you prevail nothing? Behold, the world is
gone after him.
12:19 The Pharisees
therefore said among themselves, Perceive
you how you prevail

world is gone after him.
12:20 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship
at the feast.
the leaders who thought of Emmanuel as a competitor.
Both they and the people believed that He was to be the new King over the
physical nation of Israel back then. They were all wrong:.John
And was it
actually the 'whole world' who went 'after him' back then? No! Understand
the words 'whole' and 'all' mean.
12:21,22 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida
of Galilee and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Emmanuel. Philip
came and told Andrew and again Andrew and Philip told Emmanuel.
12:23,24 And Emmanuel
answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be
glorified. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall
into the ground and die, it abides alone, but if it die, it brings forth

to' and what's
that all mean?).me, let
him follow me.(you
follow someone to learn from them in being a part of what they may be doing;
that's what a disciple
is, a follower:.Philippians
2:5).and where I am, there
shall also my servant be. If any man serve.(or

12:27 Now is my soul troubled and what shall I say? Father, save me
from this hour, but for this cause came I unto this hour.
12:28-30 Father, glorify your name. Then came there a voice from heaven,
saying, I have both glorified it and will glorify it again. The people

An angel spake to him. Emmanuel answered and said, This voice came not

12:33 This he said, signifying what death
he should die.
12:34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law.(referring
to Psalms 110:4; ancient Jews
called every part of the sacred
writings by the name, The Law, in opposition to the words or sayings of

is this Son of man?
12:35 Then Emmanuel
said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while you
have the light, lest darkness come upon you, for
he that walks in darkness knows not
where he's going.
12:36 While you have light, believe in the
light, that you may be the children of light. These things spake Emmanuel
and departed and did hide himself from them.

Testament times, they didn't want God around, so God hid

their minds were closed to seeing the works of God.
12:38 that the saying of Esaias.(Isaiah).the
prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake; Lord, who hath believed our
report? And to whom has
the arm of the Lord been revealed?
12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because

hardened their heart.(Exodus
14:4), that they should not see with their eyes, nor
with their heart and be converted and I should heal them.

that is a progression in truth.
12:42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him,
but because of the Pharisees
they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue.
12:43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
John 12:44 Emmanuel cried and said, He that believes
on me, believes not on me, but on him that sent me.

John 12:47 And if any man hear my words and believe
not, I judge him not. For I came not to judge the world, but to save
12:47 And if any man hear my words and believe not, I judge him not.
For I came not to judge the world.(came
not to get after them for the ways they live by which are hurting them;
well, who then judges? and why
did He come?), but to save.(?).the

words, has one that judges him. The word that I have spoken, the same shall
judge him in the last day.
3:17 "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through him might be saved."
12:48 He that rejects me and receives not my words.(Psalms
50:16,17), has one that judges him. The word that I have spoken,
the same shall judge him in the last
12:49 For I have not spoken of myself, but the Father which sent me
he gave me a commandment what I should say and what I should speak.
It's not God
that judges. Well, who does judge
the wrongs then? And what about
the right things, what happens then? It's the laws Father-Creator has set
up that provide an.automatic
result in life. God the
knower, knows what he is doing, as we also know what we are doing.
God has set things up a certain way for our learning. A living man, woman
or child's own words (thoughts and resultant
actions) determine the kind of life he will have, because the universe
is already set up with these laws. And so, we are judged by them daily
and it's written down. Where?
And, what laws, what words?
The good words illuminate the pathway of eternal life and provide for the
automatic law of reap what has been sown. Emmanuel came to reveal the
way of the soul, the way of the Father. He was perfect but came to
for what humanity has sow.
We are all
judged by our works of good or
the works of the spirit in us or the works of us following the ordinary
consciousness way of living, better known as the
ego, which is easily
tricked into evil by the invisible beings of the dark side.
12:50 And I know that his commandment.(means
'instruction', 'guidance', the right
pathway for a good life).is
Creator wants you to live forever).
Whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the
Father said unto me.(how?),
so I speak.
