Expediency & Extravagance

John 11:45 – 12:8

With the Pharisees realizing that if not stopped Jesus' popularity could cause the Romans to crush them and so they now plot to have Jesus die. Dr. Sproul looks into the current persecution of the followers of Jesus and follows that up with a discussion on Pontius Pilate and Caiaphas. When Jesus returns to Bethany, He has dinner with Lazarus, Martha, and Mary, who anoints His feet with oil. Dr. Sproul considers this event and how it showed the love of one person and the greed of another.
