John 12:1-6 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Six days before the Passover ceremonies began, Jesus arrived in Bethany, the home of Lazarus -- the man he had raised from the dead. 2 A dinner was prepared in Jesus' honor. Martha served, and Lazarus sat at the table with him. 3 Then Mary took a twelve-ounce jar a of expensive perfume made from essence of nard, and she anointed Jesus' feet with it and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with fragrance. 4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples -- the one who would betray him -- said, 5 "That perfume was worth a small fortune. b It should have been sold and the money given to the poor." 6 Not that he cared for the poor -- he was a thief who was in charge of the disciples' funds, and he often took some for his own use.
