The Gospel of John (part ten)

The raising of Lazarus from the dead set in motion events that would eventually lead to Jesus’ arrest and crucifixion. Mary, the sister of Lazarus, seemed to know what was coming. Jesus joined the family for dinner less than a week before Jesus’ crucifixion. Perhaps this was a celebration of Jesus’ miracle that restored Lazarus to the family. During dinner, Mary worshipped Jesus in a most remarkable way. Hers was voluntary and costly worship of Jesus her Christ. And like most such worship, it was not without criticism. Mary’s treatment of Jesus stands as a good model of worship that we can follow.
