A Forgotten Memorial – Predators & Servants

The story moves between predators and servants.

Religious leaders (v1,2) seeking to prey on Jesus.

The friends of Jesus who prey on the unnamed woman. They gather around her and abuse her until Jesus intervenes and shouts ‘Leave her alone’(v4,6).

Judas the disciple preys on Jesus (v10).

But look at the servants in the story.

Simon the Leper who yields his home.

Those who prepare and serve the meal.

The unnamed woman.

The predators are found among those with power, privilege and position.

For Reflection
Where am I most comfortable?
