Costly: Mary of Bethany Anoints Jesus

A Play for Holy Week

This is a first person monologue from Mary of Bethany. She talks about her family’s experience knowing Jesus and what moved her to anoint Jesus. It is based on John 12:1-11

A service from Westminster Presbyterian Church in Tiburon, California where Barbara Kessell engages this monologue for her sermon from April 3, 2022

I understand that the podcast of the same service came through better than the video recording. Check it out as a podcast here.

If you use this play at your church, I’d love to hear about it! Send me an e-mail to tell me about your production, and be sure to include a picture or two!

If you enjoyed it, and would like to send a donation to support me, you can do so here:
