Matthew 26:1-13

may 18

Today’s Scripture:

When Jesus had finished all these sayings, He said to His disciples, “You know that after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to be crucified.”

Then the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders of the people gathered in the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, and took counsel that they might take Jesus covertly and kill Him. But they said, “Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.”

When Jesus was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, a woman came to Him having an alabaster jar of very expensive ointment and poured it on His head as He sat at supper.

When His disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “For what purpose is this waste? This ointment might have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor.”

10 When Jesus perceived it, He said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? She has done a good work for Me. 11 For you have the poor always with you, but you do not always have Me. 12 In pouring this ointment on My body, she did it for My burial. 13 Truly I say to you, wherever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will be told in memory of her.”
