Mary Sister of Lazarus

Additional Links

Ma'ry, Sister of Laz'arus. She and her sister Martha appear in Luke 10:40, as receiving Christ in their house. Mary sat listening eagerly for every word that fell from the divine Teacher. She had chosen that good part, the "one thing needful." The same character shows itself in the history of John 11:1. Her grief was deeper, but less active.

Her first thought, when she saw the Teacher in whose power and love she that trusted, was one of complaint. But the great joy and love, which her brother's return to life called up in her, poured themselves out in larger measure than had been seen before; the treasured alabaster box of ointment was brought forth at the final feast of Bethany. John 12:3.
