(My non-Christian friends don't have to read the verse)
(1)Six days before the Passover, Jesus arrived at Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. (2)Here a dinner was given in Jesus' honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. (3)Then Mary took about a pint[a] of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
There is much discussion and speculation among scholars that Mary, the sister of Lazarus and Martha, was, in fact, Mary Magdalene. From my personal research, there is no concrete evidence stating such, but lots of circumstantial evidence that points in that direction.
What do you think?

I think people waste their time trying to figure things like this out.IMO the Bible is meant to know God and know Jesus. The other people are supposed to be tools to help us learn about both God and Jesus and how both have helped them. Do not lose sight of what is important. GOD< AND>JESUS Mary or her sister.neighbor,brother,mother, are not God therefore learn from what good Jesus and God had done for them instead of learning about them personally. I know this is what they would have wanted. They never wanted to be a block to be used to lose sight of our Lord ,and Saviour. God bless.
