Lent Course Week 1 - Mark 14:1-11 Anointing for Burial

The first in the 2016 CiA Lent series with Dave Perry - "When Suffering is Glory: Mark 14-16"

In week 1, Dave discusses the annointing of Jesus by the unnamed woman in Simon the Leper's house.

This is the start of the Passion narrative in Mark and Jesus says that the woman has done 'a beautiful thing' and that what she did will always be told as part of the gospel - why did he single out her act in this way?  What does it show us about how to read the Passion narrative in Mark?  How can we respond?

As with all of these talks, as well as the audio of Dave's talk below, on the right you will find links to his powerpoint images and the handout given out at the end, which includes the discussion questions from the evening and some further questions for personal reflection.
