TSNTyndale Study Notes:

11:1 In Hebrew, Lazarus is a shortened form of Eleazar (“God helps”). Among Jews in the first century, it was the fourth-most-common name for a man (see also Luke 16:19-31).
• Bethany was a small village east of Jerusalem just over the Mount of Olives (John 11:18) and was where Jesus often stayed when he was in Jerusalem. Jesus would have traveled through Bethany on the way to Jerusalem because most Jews coming from Galilee used a route going south to Jericho, then west to Jerusalem.
• Mary and Martha were sisters (Luke 10:38-42). Martha was probably older; she was the host in Luke’s story and here represented the family. Mary later anointed Jesus with perfume (John 12:1-8).


UTNuW Translation Notes:

Note 1 topic: writing-background

General Information:

11:1–2 provide background information about Lazarus and his sisters. Use the natural form in your language for expressing background information.

Note 2 topic: writing-participants

ἦν δέ τις ἀσθενῶν Λάζαρος ἀπὸ Βηθανίας

was and /a/_certain_‹man› ailing Lazarus of Bethany

This verse introduces Lazarus as a new character in the story. Use the natural form in your language for introducing a new character. Alternate translation: “There was a man named Lazarus, who was from Bethany and was sick”

Note 3 topic: translate-kinship

Μάρθας τῆς ἀδελφῆς αὐτῆς

Martha the sister ˱of˲_her

Because those who wrote scripture usually listed the names of siblings in order from oldest to youngest, the list in 11:5 suggests that Martha was the oldest and Lazarus was the youngest of the three siblings. If your language uses different words for sister depending on birth order, use the word for an older sister here. Alternate translation: “her older sister Martha”
