Bible Commentary for John 12:2

Wesley's Notes for John 12:2


12:2 It seems Martha was a person of some figure, from the great respect which was paid to her and her sister, in visits and condolences on Lazarus's death, as well as from the costly ointment mentioned in the next verse. And probably it was at their house our Lord and his disciples lodged, when he returned from Jerusalem to Bethany, every evening of the last week of his life, upon which he was now entered.

  • Chris - in Reply on John 12:2
    In Jn 12:2, the people in that home were of course, Mary & Martha, the sisters of Lazarus. This account with Lazarus ends in Jn 11:45. In v46, those Jews who saw the resurrected Lazarus then went quickly over to the Pharisees to report what they had seen and then the rest of chap 11 speaks of their plot to kill Jesus. But Jesus went away and then returned to Bethany six days before the Passover, and fellowshipped with Lazarus and his sisters (Jn 12:1 >).
