John 11:16

Didymus (Didumov).
The word means twin. Clearly Thomas had a twin brother or sister. Applied two other times to him (20:24; 21:2). The Aramaic word for Thomas means Twin and Didymus is just the Greek equivalent of Thomas. He may even in Greek circles have been called Didymus.

His fellow disciples (toiv sunmathtaiv).
Dative case and article use like "his." Only use of sunmathtev in the N.T., rare word (in Plato).

Us also (kai hmeiv).
As well as Jesus, since he is bent on going.

That we may die with him (ina apotanwmen met' autou).
Purpose clause with ina and the second aorist active subjunctive of apotnhskw. Die with Jesus, Thomas means. Lazarus is already dead and they will kill Jesus (verse 8). Pessimistic courage surely.
