ARE YOU A PLAYER OR A SPECTATOR?
The cast of characters
JESUS – Emmanuel/God on Earth/King of Kings/Lord of Lords
MARY – Worshipper of Jesus
Lazarus- Resurrected hanger outer
Judas- Treasurer and Critic
religious leaders and general public
MARTHA – In the kitchen
SO….. (thanks Jeremy for pointingthis out!) MARY is passionately in AWE of JESUS….she is slathering him with perfume and washing his feet with her tears! She is aware of who he is and what he deserves.
WHY aren’t the others doing the same?
MARTHA is busy being responsible! I appreciate Martha. Somebody needs to be responsible. Or we’ll all be hungry……except….Oh yeah! This guy fed 5,000 and 4,000 people out of thin air. SO, MARTHA———GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN!
JUDAS is busy being…..Judas. I mean….honestly….somebody needs to keep track of the money. Next thing you know it’ll be wasted on homeless people or prisoners. Gotta use the Lord’s resources appropriately, right? JUDAS….the work will be done despite you!
LAZARUS is hanging out….After 4 days dead he is probably just happy to be there……
The disciples are ….there. Wonder if they are just so used to the incredible that they are confortable.
Religious leaders….it is bigger than you. Why are you not AMAZED?
