Jesus at the home of Martha and Mary (also referred to as Christ in the House of Martha and Mary and by other variant names) refers to an episode in the life of Jesus which appears only in the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 10 verses 38-42, and can be read immediately after the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:38-42). Jesus visits the home of Lazarus, Martha and Mary of Bethany, ] the latter typically conflated in Catholic medieval tradition with Mary Magdalene, though the New Testament probably means a different person.

According to the Gospel of Luke:

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!" "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."
