(Mt. 26:1-5, 6-13; Mk. 14:1-2, 3-9; Lk. 22:1-2; Jn. 11:45-53; 12:1-8)
The chief priests and scribes were looking for a way to arrest and kill the Lord Jesus Christ, but finally decided not to do this on Easter days, because a great noise would be made by the people and a riot would begin.
In the house of a leper named Simon, a woman anointed Jesus' feet and head with pure nard oil costing 300 denarii. One of Jesus’ disciples, Judas, reproached the woman, saying that it would be possible to feed the poor with the money from the sale of that oil.
