I would tend to say that Jesus probably wept out of sorrow more than
anger, for note the next verse (36):
ELEGON OUN hOI IOUDAIOI, IDE PWS EFILEI AUTON.
Some of the people obviously saw this as an act of sorrow - a man
weeping for a dead friend. The fact that others taunted Jesus at this
moment probably angered him, but I don't think that it was the reason
why he wept in the first place.
