Lily, with other pious women, ministered to Jesus (Luke 8:3 ).
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Susanna
SUSANNA (Σουσάννα fr. שׁוֹשַׁנָּה, fem. שׁוֹשַׁן, which denotes a lily or any lily-like flower).—All that is known of her is that she was one of the women who ministered to Jesus (Luke 8:3). The mention of her name without further particulars implies that she was well known. This may have been due to her special devotion, in which case reference to her on other occasions would have been expected, or to her social rank, which view may derive support from the succession of her name to that of Joanna (wh. see).
