“Do you see this woman?” (Jesus’ outrageous response to an inappropriate foot massage) #sermon #podcast March 24, 2014

Let’s say you’re a rabbi in 1st century Palestine, and you’ve heard of this really hip new rabbi named Jesus that everybody’s talking about, so you invite him to your house for a dinner party in his honor. Because you’re a generous person, you invite everybody in town to come and have some food, but then this trouble-making sinful woman comes in and she gets really intimate with Jesus in a completely inappropriate way, kissing his feet and rubbing them with her hair erotically while he’s eating. You don’t even say anything; you just shoot her a dirty look. And then Jesus responds by going off for being a terrible host, the worst possible insult you could receive from your guest of honor in a culture that prides itself on hospitality. How would you feel? If God speaks to you through this sermon, then subscribe to the podcast and share it with a friend.
