In the third in a series of articles in which we examine Jesus' encounters with various individuals, we take a look at the conversation of Jesus with Mary of Bethany in Mark 14:1-9. Jesus was on his way to Calvary. He had made it increasingly a matter of conversation since the time he spoke with...
