Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 11:2

_ _ It was that Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment, etc. — This, though not recorded by our Evangelist till John 12:3, was so well known in the teaching of all the churches, according to our Lord’s prediction (Matthew 26:13), that it is here alluded to by anticipation, as the most natural way of identifying her; and she is first named, though the younger, as the more distinguished of the two. She “anointed THE LORD,” says the Evangelist — led doubtless to the use of this term here, as he was about to exhibit Him illustriously as the Lord of Life.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 11:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 11:2

It was that Mary who afterward anointed, &c. She was more known than her elder sister Martha, and as such is named before her.
