[SOLVED!] Who Cleaned Jesus?

In sharp contrast, here was this who and what sort of woman bending over Jesus’ soiled feet, washing them with her tears and gently wiping his feet with her hair. After pouring precious ointment on his feet, her worship overflowed in reverent kisses to his feet. Simon was regarded better than her in every way, but Jesus knew their hearts (Luke 2:35) 😊 “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair 😁 You gave me no kiss, but from the time I camecome in she has not ceased to kiss my feet 👍 You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment.”
The main thrust of this passage appears on the surface to be the transformed life of the sinful woman. But she was merely one element of the story, which focuses primarily on the Lord evangelizing a Pharisee. Jesus used her as a testimony to him and the others present of the truth and power of the gospel. Ironically, Jesus demonstrated His power to forgive sins and transform lives by using the very type of person the Pharisees despised the most. In reality, the self-righteous, hypocritical religious leaders were the worst possible sinners; people who believe they are not lost and think they do not need redemption cannot be saved.

As per the analysts from openbible.info, one of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he’s having gone into the Pharisee’s house and took his place at the table. And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learnt that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she’s beginninginning to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he’s had saying said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner.” And Jesus answering said to him, “Simon, I’m having something to say to you.” And he answered, “Say it, Teacher.” … (edited by Jack Morgan from Yerevan, Armenia on December 4, 2020)
According to the Gospel according to St Luke, Jesus met the sinful woman at the house of Simon the Pharisee who invited Christ to eat. Artist A employs a minimalist setting structured very like the one used for the parable of the wicked rich man (f. 155r). The aim is to suggest an indoor setting and not distract the beholder with ornamental details. The sparse setting, like its arbitrary spatial projection, serves rather as a foil for the image displayed in front of this geometrical, trompe-l’œil funnel as if the scene were emerging from timeless depths only to invade the here and now of devout contemplation.The Pharisee and a guest sit talking to Christ at a table laid with three golden goblets and bowls. The young man on the right of the master of the house toys with his knife whilst Christ dips a piece of bread in his bowl and points his other hand at the woman lying full length at his feet. The paraphrase beneath the illumination calls the sinful woman Mary Magdalene – thereby associating her, as was sometimes the case in the catholic tradition, with Mary of Magdala, one of Christ’s beloved female followers, but Luke’s text says nothing about this. The repentant woman in tears wearing a scarlet gown wipes Christ’s feet with her long, unbraided hair hanging loosely over her shoulders: an indication in medieval Christian iconography of the very greatest sorrow. Such great love moves Christ to forgive her, much to the astonishment of those present. (last modified 40 days ago by Hasani Q. From Can Tho, Vietnam)
