|« Luke 2, 41-52||Acts 1,1-11, Haggai 1,1-15||Build with God's Glory »|
12:2 Here a dinner was given in Jesus' honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him.
12:3 Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
12:4 But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected,
12:5 "Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year's wages. "
12:6 He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.
12:7 "Leave her alone," Jesus replied. "It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial.
12:8 You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me."
