Mark 14:8  (King James Version)
She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

"It appears to me more probable," says Dr. Doddridge, "that Matthew and Mark should have introduced this story out of its place--that Lazarus, if he made this feast (which is not expressly said by John,) should have made use of Simon's house, as more convenient--and that Mary should have poured this ointment on Christ's head and body, as well as on his feet,--than that, within the compass of four days, Christ should have been twice anointed with so costly a perfume; and that the same fault should be found with the action, and the same value set upon the ointment, and the same words used in defence of the woman, and all this in the presence of many of the same persons; all which improbable particulars must be admitted, if the stories be considered as different." The rebuke which Judas received from Christ at this unction determined him in his resolution to betray his Master; and therefore Christ's rebuke, and Judas's revenge, are united, as cause and effect, by Matthew and Mark.
