Although the name Mary was common, one “Mary” in particular was certainly not, and that prime example was Mary of Bethany. This Mary was the sister of Lazarus and Martha who all resided in the small town of Bethany.

    Martha of Bethany is hard at work preparing food for her guests (right) and you would therefore expect the woman on the left to be her sister. It is not. It is Mary Magdalene, kneeling at Jesus’ feel on the morning of the Resurrection – the wounds in Jesus’ side, hands and feet make it clear that this scene is post-Resurrection.   Jesus responds, maybe a bit sharply, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed." And here comes Author: Caroline Hsu.
