Mary of Bethany

Mary of Bethany
Christ in the Home of Mary and Martha by Pieter Aertsen

So this was a message I’ve been waiting to teach for years.

I believe, I truly believe, that outside of John the Baptist, Peter, and Paul, Mary of Bethany is possibly the most important, and oft neglected, personal story in the New Testament.

Her story goes far beyond the “Mary and Martha” tagline we usually attach to her and she shows up in more places in scripture than we realize.

Hers is a story of gender equality, pure devotion, exemplary worship, friendship to Jesus, and, ultimately, honor. Jesus himself tied the telling of his gospel to the repeating of her story.

All of this is why we named our eldest daughter, Mary Joy.
