Martha was probably born in Iudaea Province (modern-day Israel or West Bank). The name Martha is a Latin transliteration of the Koine Greek Μάρθα, itself a translation of the Aramaic Martâ, "the mistress" or "the lady," from "mistress", feminine of "master."
In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus visits the home of two sisters named Mary and Martha. The two sisters are contrasted: Martha was "encumbered about many things" while Jesus was their guest, while Mary had chosen "the better part", that of listening to the Master's discourse.
The name of their village is not recorded, nor (unlike in John 11:18) is there any mention of whether Jesus was near Jerusalem.
Martha appears again in John 12:1–8, where she serves at a meal held in Jesus' honour at which her brother is also a guest. The narrator only mentions that the meal takes place in Bethany, while the apparently parallel accounts in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark specify that it takes place at the home of one Simon the Leper. It is at this meal that a woman (Martha's sister Mary, according to John) anoints Jesus with expensive perfume.
