Debt Forgiven - Luke 7:36-50

April 19, 2015

This text brings a shocking scene as a "woman of the city" erupts in an overflow of love and joy in Jesus' presence, wetting his feet with her tears and drying them with her hair, kissing his feet and pouring expensive perfume onto them. In stark contrast we also see Simon the Pharisee, at whose house and table Jesus was sitting, respond with frustration as he questions Jesus' response and ministry. The centerpiece of it all is a short, but pointed parable about a debt forgiven.
