The sister of Mary and Lazarus. 

Jesus raised Martha's
brother Lazarus

Martha lived in Bethany and was a friend of Jesus. Martha welcomed Jesus to their home but complained that her sister Mary was not helping her to prepare a meal. Jesus rebuked Martha and commended Mary for choosing "the better portion."  On another occasion Martha appealed to Jesus for help when her brother Lazarus had died, and Jesus responded by telling her: "I am the resurrection and the life."
