Anointing of Jesus by a Woman at Bethany
“And while he was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster cruse of ointment of pure nard very costly; and she brake the cruse, and poured it over his head.” Mark 14:3 ASV
A woman pours a bottle of expensive ointment over Jesus’ head as he sits at a table. A man (perhaps Simon the leper) stands in the background.
