THE GOOD MESSAGE OF
JESUS THE CHRIST
Interpretation

34. Jesus Forgives a Loving Sinner.

The Pharisee who invited him expected Jesus to have the awareness to recognize a prostitute, but Jesus did not condemn people for their past actions. Seeing her loving deeds of the present Jesus showed the Pharisee that perhaps she was deserving of more forgiveness than he; she had sinned much, but she also loved deeply in return for being forgiven. When Jesus forgave her the past mistakes, the karma was released, and her trust had brought her into spiritual balance.

Addictive obsessions and sexual abuses often cause people to have "unclean spirits;" Jesus helped many people free themselves from these types of habitual patterns, notably Mary Magdalene who had had seven entities (demons) disturbing her. In gratitude many of these women financially supported Jesus and his disciples.
