~ Why Are They Hating On A Whore ("ho") ?
37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
Ruth Woman, the sinful nature of a woman is often looked upon as detestable. While the sin of the woman who brought an ALABASTER BOX to JESUS was not specific I will name it as a whore.
And even though she was a sinner and obviously everyone knew of her dark and perhaps tawdry past she was waiting to get to JESUS. This sounds like an oxymoron, a whore who wanted to be near JESUS and not for the obvious reasons. But she was there in the HOUSE for REPENTANCE and to HONOR the MAN of GOD with her BEST; ALABASTER BOX of OINTMENT.
But isn't it just like us as THE RIGHTEOUS to RIDICULE, point fingers, and say things that could cause further damage not knowing her circumstance. Her OBVIOUS BROKENNESS wasn't enough for the PHARISEE to be COMPASSIONATE and offer help. And neither did her TEARS or POSTURE move his self righteous but. We can be just like him sometimes, pitiful in character.
But he in all of his GRANDEUR and GREAT UPSTANDING began to also question even JESUS"s ABILITY to KNOW who was in the HOUSE among HIM.
But JESUS ADDRESSED THE MATTER IMMEDIATELY !
HE asked the host why are you so concerned with her and yet this is your house.
You are the HOST and you didn't HONOR me with WATER to wash my feet, no kiss or oil to anoint myself with. But you stand in judgement against this woman who's sinned and her HEART is in the right place. She has a SPIRIT of HUMILITY and to SERVE and you are missing the mark by a mile.
She is willing to LOVE me, JESUS in her dismal place. JESUS said to her right there that her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much. He then said to her, "Thy sins are forgiven". And that's not all HE told her, "Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace."
JESUS stopped what HE was doing, (dining, visiting, socializing) and began to MINISTER to this FRAGILE WOMAN.
Our work is MINISTERING and not MENACING.
LOVE in spite of.

*Writing to you through the HEART of GOD by FAITH.<3 span="">3>
Luke 744 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
