Read Luke 10:38-42
Mary, Martha and their brother Lazarus and quite a study in themselves. They lived in Bethany and, it seems, became really good friends of Jesus. Much of their story is told in the book of John so you’ll have to wait to read a fuller description!
I picture Mary sitting in the midst of a group of men, at Jesus’ feet, listening intently to what He was teaching. This in itself is so cool. To think of Jesus valuing her, teaching the men around Him why and how to value women, and leaving us this sweet picture.
- Then we have Martha. As you look through her eyes, what is going on in this scene?
- Who is Jesus to her, based on their interaction?
- What does she discover?
