Hello and greetings
from Bethany to you people 2000 years from now.
I'm outside the
house of Lazarus, brother to the sisters Mary & Martha, all well known in
the area. Especially after those reports a while back that they thought that
Lazuras had died until Jesus called him out of the tomb alive. This preacher
from north is still causing a bit of a stir here. He and his friends are in
town and last night they had a bit of a party here. I'm told that Martha served
up quite a meal. Then Mary took some expensive perfume and poured it over the
teacher's feet and wiped them with her hair!
One of his followers
is a guy called Judas and he took a bit of an exception to this. Waste of
money, he said, could have been given to the poor. An eye witness tells me that
Jesus put him in his place saying
“It was intended that she should save this
perfume for the day of my burial. You will always have the poor among you, but you will not
always have me.” What did he mean by
Well the crowd is building up a bit now as the news
gets out that he's here, what with the Passover festival coming up. Will he be
going to Jerusalem? Keep checking back. I'll keep you updated with reports over
the next few days.
