Martha receives undeserved criticism from preachers expounding on the account of Jesus’ visit to the home she shared with her sister, Mary, and brother, Lazarus! Here’s how it’s recorded in The New Living Amplified Paraphrased King James Watkins Version
“Mary! Mary! I need some help in the kitchen!” Martha glared at her sister who was sitting in the living room with their guest.
“In a minute,” Mary said, without moving.
Martha glanced at her “To Do” list which was artistically penned on home-made paper with ink made from crushed cultivated grapes.
☐ Trim myrtle shrubs into the shape of the twelve disciples.
☐ Make 100 percent organic Jell-O from cow hooves.
☐ Carve wooden bowl in shape of the sea of Galilee. Float matzah balls shaped like fishing boats in the soup.
