Bible: John 12:2-8

12:2 So they prepared a dinner for Jesus 1  there. Martha 2  was serving, and Lazarus was among those present at the table 3  with him. 12:3 Then Mary took three quarters of a pound 4  of expensive aromatic oil from pure nard 5  and anointed the feet of Jesus. She 6  then wiped his feet dry with her hair. (Now the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfumed oil.) 7  12:4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (the one who was going to betray him) 8  said, 12:5 Why wasn’t this oil sold for three hundred silver coins 9  and the money 10  given to the poor? 12:6 (Now Judas 11  said this not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief. As keeper of the money box, 12  he used to steal what was put into it.) 13  12:7 So Jesus said, “Leave her alone. She has kept it for the day of my burial. 14  12:8 For you will always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me! 15
