When the most extreme love meet the sharpest criticism…
<John 12:1-8; Mk 14:8-9>


1. The Offering which Mary gave to the Lord Jesus. <v1-3>

1) Most Costly Offering

2) Most Humble Offering

3) Unselfconscious Offering


2. Judah, the Devil’s Advocate. <v4-6> 

1) Judah who could not love God, is filled with jealousy when he saw Mary’s portrayal of God’s love

2) Judah’s evilness is very well hidden

3) Judah’s criticism subtly influences people around him


3. The Lord Jesus defended Mary. <v7-8>

1) The Gospel pointed to Christ, not to good works

2) The Gospel is about the Salvation of men’s soul, not a social gospel

3) What Mary did as a result of knowing Christ will spread throughout the World
