Adult Education – In Remembrance of Her: The Women Who Anoint Jesus
March 12 @ 10:10 am - 11:00 am
Sundays, March 5 and 12
10:10 a.m. in Classroom 6
All four Gospels tell the story of a woman anointing Jesus. Yet, the accounts of this moment differ. One Gospel places this narrative early in Jesus’ ministry; the others situate it in the final week of Jesus’ life. In the Synoptic Gospels the woman is unnamed, even though Matthew and Mark record Jesus’ pronouncement: “What she has done will be told in remembrance of her.” John, alone, names the woman.
What do we make of the differences? What is the significance of the anointing? What does this act tell us about Jesus, about the women? Join the Rev. Sudie Niesen Thompson on March 5 and 12 to delve into the stories of the women who anoint the Anointed One.
