Holy Week

Today’s passage is John 12:1-11

6 days before passover, and just a day before Jesus entered Jerusalem, he was sitting at Mary, Martha, and Lazarus’ table with the hosts and guests, Mary brought out a valuable perfume and poured it on Jesus’ feet. While, in that time, it was not as unusual of an act as we would think it – the other guests acted shocked.  They judged, condemned, and quickly criticized. Jesus response was, as usual, revealing.

To those saying this as a waste, Jesus responded to their words even though he knew their deceitful hearts.

To those who attacked Mary, Jesus defended her heart.

And, to those who attempted to hide their own dirty hearts by appealing to Jesus’ compassion and mercy, Jesus confronted their perversion of his character and mission.

It is holy week, see you tomorrow.
