John 12:1-6 NLT

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.
