TEACHING- [Past posts- verses below]
In the last chapter Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.
Now he goes to have a meal with the family.
The bible says Lazarus sat at the table with Jesus.
I read a psalm the other day [81] and it reminded me of us being at ‘the table’ with Jesus
Psalm 81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
Now- as they sit and eat- Mary pours expensive perfume on Jesus- it fills the house with the sweet smell.
One of the disciples says ‘hey- what a waste- we could have sold it and used it for the poor’.
Jesus rebukes him ‘you always have the poor with you- but I will not be here too much longer’.

Jesus was always with the Father- from all eternity.
For him to be forsaken of God for our sins- was an experience that he never knew before. [Some sites see here ]
Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of
