Bible: Luke 7:36-39

Jesus’ Anointing

7:36 Now one of the Pharisees 1  asked Jesus 2  to have dinner with him, so 3  he went into the Pharisee’s house and took his place at the table. 4  7:37 Then 5  when a woman of that town, who was a sinner, learned that Jesus 6  was dining 7  at the Pharisee’s house, she brought an alabaster jar 8  of perfumed oil. 9  7:38 As 10  she stood 11  behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. She 12  wiped them with her hair, 13  kissed 14  them, 15  and anointed 16  them with the perfumed oil. 7:39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, 17  he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, 18  he would know who and what kind of woman 19  this is who is touching him, that she is a sinner.”
