  • 13. Summary
    • Jesus and his followers arrived in Bethany and were greeted by Martha. (Lk 10:38)
    • Her sister Mary sat at Jesus’ feet and listened to him while Martha served him. (Lk 10:39)
    • Martha asks Jesus to tell Mary to help her. (Lk 10:40)
    • Jesus tells her Mary has chosen the right thing to do. (Lk 10:41-42)
  • 14. Reflection
    • Do you think it was fair for Jesus to chastise Martha for serving him?
    • How do you think Martha felt?
    • How do you think Mary felt?
    • Who do you think was doing the right thing?
  • 15. In-Depth Analysis
    • Sitting at His feet
      • Sitting at His feet implies that he is her master and teacher.
        • Scholars believe it was against Jewish culture to teach Women the Torah.
        • Makes this an extremely radical move.
  • 16. Analysis Cont’d
    • Story demonstrates the importance of women
      • Women at the time were not considered as important as men
        • Jesus came for ALL of us.
        • Author centers the story around a man (Jesus) and two women (Martha and Mary)
  • 17. Analysis Cont’d
    • The Story reminds us to:
      • Avoid distractions and worries
        • Jesus rebukes Martha for being “anxious and worried about many things” (Lk 10:41) and not focusing on what’s truly important.
      • Balance listening to the word of God with serving Him
        • Mary realizes that the word of God is just as important as servitude.
        • Jesus teaches us that we must focus on listening and get distracted by trivial matters.
