THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 10 - Verse 39

Verse 39. Sat at Jesus' feet. This was the ancient posture of disciples or learners. They sat at the feet of their teachers— that is, beneath them, in a humble place. Hence Paul is represented as having been brought up at the feet of Gamaliel, Ac 22:3. When it is said that Mary sat at Jesus' feet, it means that she was a disciple of his; that she listened attentively to his instructions, and was anxious to learn his doctrine.

{q} "sat at Jesus' feet" Lu 8:35; Ac 22:3
