A Dinner Party With Jesus
Topic: Default Passage: Mark 14:1–11
While the net tightens around Jesus as religious leaders conspire with Judas Iscariot to arrest and kill Jesus, Mark’s gospel focuses on a simple, but interrupted, dinner with Jesus and his disciples. The disciples, the religious leaders, Judas, and an unnamed woman react to Jesus in various ways based on what they ultimately treasure. In the end, the woman is commended for her devotion to Jesus and understanding of his death.
