She stood ready to anoint her savior again. What a privilege to be among the women who first learned that he had risen! She was Mary, a dedicated follower of Jesus. Casting another woman in that role because we struggle to reconcile two accounts of the same woman is not honest. The unnamed woman in Luke did not randomly wander into that dinner, carrying oil to spontaneously pour on the Teacher who would be the Messiah.
No, she came with a purpose—to anoint her savior. Women can learn at the feet of the Messiah like Mary did.

Ointment, oils and perfumes used to be put in vessels made of alabaster, which kept them pure and unspoiled. You see, this account teaches us more than just sacrifice and repentance; it teaches us love, forgiveness, and real freedom. The woman, sincere in her repentance from living a life of sin, went as far as weeping behind Christ, washing His feet with her tears, wiping them with her hair, and anointing them with the very fragrant oil she herself sacrificed for this very purpose.
Her very actions show true repentance from her sins. The Lord Jesus, obviously happy at the woman's sincerity in repenting of her sin, spoke to His host about God's forgiveness.
He told the Pharisee that though this woman was a sinner, her genuine repentance is received and is rewarded with complete pardon. Such is the wonderful truth that any and all of us should know. Anyone who repents, regardless of history or background, can and will be forgiven by God as long as the repentance is genuine.
