John 12:1-8 |
Celebrate with us the Resurrection of Lazarus.
- Host: Simon the Leper
- Honoree: Jesus of Nazareth
- Attendees: Lazarus, the Disciples of Jesus, friends and neighbors in Bethany

"Six day before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whome Jesus had raised from the dead. Here a dinner was given in Jesus' honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume."
