John 12:1-8

Text John 12:1-8
Love’s extravagance

On this fifth and last Sunday in Lent, Jesus and His disciples are on their way to Jerusalem for the Passover. 

Jesus will be arrested and crucified before the week is over. Time is short and tensions are high. They stop at the house of Lazarus, Martha and Mary for some rest and friendship before going on to Jesus' fate. 

After the supper, Mary is overcome with emotion.  She loves this man Jesus and knows Him to be the Christ of God.  She gets the most expensive thing she owns which is a pound of very expensive perfume worth a year's worth of wages and dumps it on Jesus' feet and wipes His feet with her hair.  Join us we see the depth of love Mary showed Jesus and how she is a model disciple.
