Mary of Bethany
MEET MARY OF BETHANY
Extravagant. Loved. Surrendered.
Her story is one of the most extravagant displays of surrender in all of scripture. Undone by the compassion of Jesus, she disrupted a banquet and poured over Jesus an entire jar of pure, fragrant nard. The perfume she gave him was worth over a year’s wages (in today’s terms, between $40,000-$50,000).
Her lavishness astounded, even angered those around her. But Jesus was deeply moved by her extravagance and honored her. What others called a “waste,” Jesus called “beautiful.”
Mary of Bethany was a lavish lover who was undone by the love of God. Let her story inspire you to offer your all to Jesus.
