Mary Annoints Jesus

oh 12:1  Jesus therefore six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus raised from the dead.

Joh 12:2  So they made him a supper there: and Martha served; but Lazarus was one of them that sat at meat with him.

Joh 12:3  Mary therefore took a pound of ointment of pure nard, very precious, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment.

Joh 12:4  But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, that should betray him, saith,

Joh 12:5  Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred shillings, and given to the poor?

Joh 12:6  Now this he said, not because he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and having the bag took away what was put therein.

Joh 12:7  Jesus therefore said, Suffer her to keep it against the day of my burying.
