Episode 2 of Redeemed Podcast is a dramatization inspired by the biblical account in Luke 7:36-50.
The Luke instance is often incorrectly integrated with the accounts in Matthew 26, Mark 14, and John 12. But the incident documented in Luke 7 is completely separate from these other accounts, the sinful woman referenced in Luke 7 was not Mary.
The most compelling evidence for this is the fact that the Luke 7 account is the only account that identifies the host as Pharisee named Simon. The other accounts mention that Jesus was in the house of Simon the leper A leper could never have been a Pharisee.
Not only are these events completely separate, they represent different messages. The accounts in Matthew 26, Mark 14 and John 12 celebrate Mary’s correct understanding of the imminent death of Jesus, but the passage with the unknown woman in Luke 7 is a message of raw repentance.
We’ve given this unknown woman a name, Rebecca.
And her journey will stay with you forever.
