Mary Anoints Jesus
We begin John 12 this week and the well-known story of Mary anointing Jesus with oil to prepare him for burial. Judas Iscariot famously objects, acting as if he cares about money that could have been used for the poor, while the scene creates a stir among the people who wanted to see the risen Lazarus. All these events continue to move us toward the inevitability of the cross.
Take some time to read John 12:1–11 a few times before Sunday and note the various responses to Jesus among Mary, Judas, the crowds, and the chief priests.
See you Sunday!
