|Overview - Luke 7|
|1||Christ finds a greater faith in the centurion, a Gentile than in any of the Jews;|
|10||heals his servant, being absent;|
|11||raises from death the widow's son at Nain;|
|18||answers John's messengers with the declaration of his miracles;|
|24||testifies to the people what opinion he held of John;|
|31||inveighs against the Jews, who with neither the manners of John nor of Jesus could be won;|
|36||and suffering his feet to be washed and anointed by a woman who was a sinner, he shows how he is a friend to sinners, to forgive them their sins, upon their repentance.|

Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.

- Many have supposed that this person was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the sister of Lazarus. But there is no indication in the gospel history, that Mary Magdalene was the sister of Lazarus; but on the contrary, it would appear that they were perfectly distinct persons, the sister of Lazarus residing at Bethany, while Mary Magdalene appears to have resided at Magdala, east of Jordan, a distance of nearly ninety miles. Add to this, that our Saviour seems to have been now in or near Nain, not at Bethany; and the woman appears from the recital to have been previously unknown to him.
