Mary of Bethany, the sister of Lazarus and Martha (John 11:1). Jesus commended her for being more interested in hearing him than in providing a bounteous dinner (Luke 10:42). She joined with Martha in saying to Jesus after the death of Lazarus, "Lord, . . . if you had been here, my brother would not have died" (John 11:21). Afterward, a week before the last Passover, when Jesus was a guest in the house of Simon the Leper (Mark 14:3), she showed her devotion to Jesus by anointing his head and feet with costly ointment and wiping his feet with her hair (John 12:3). Her act would always be remembered (Matt 26:6-13; Mark 14:3-9), an act of love and a preparation for his coming death (John 12:7-8).
