The Last Week of Jesus | Day 3 - The Anointing of Jesus
Bethany was a small village located on the outskirts of Jerusalem. While there, at a banquet held in his honor, Jesus was anointed by Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus. She used a large vessel of pure nard, one of the most expensive substances of the ancient world. Jesus used this event to tell his followers of his soon and coming death (Matthew 26, Mark 14, John 12).
