Why do you make trouble for the woman?
So a woman came to Jesus with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table. Jesus response near His death, though ye thought not of it: effect of the woman’s act, not her conscious purpose. The Syriac version introduces a quasi. She meant nothing but to show her love, quickened possibly by instinctive foreboding of ill. Disciples thought it to be a waste of perfume.
Aware of this, Jesus said to them, ‘Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. When Jesus had finished saying all these things. “As you know, the Passover was two days away, and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.” and they schemed to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him. “But not during the festival,” they said, “or there may be a riot among the people. Jesus had concluded His public teaching ministry as well as His final teaching to the disciples before His death and resurrection.Therefore, the final words of Jesus are “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” Acts 1:8, NIV. I know I kinda went over a little. I think that it was awesome how the woman showed her love to Jesus and that the fact Jesus spoke the words of the power of the Holy Spirit coming upon each of us. What a gift to not be taken for granted. I believe knowing more about Jesus is essential to our walk every moment of our life. Knowing Jesus is the reason for every season of our lives. Just saying.
”And as they were eating, Jesus took bread; The bread, or cake, which the master of the family used to divide among them, after they had eaten the passover. This custom our Lord now transferred to a nobler use. This bread is, that is, signifies or represents, Jesus’s body, according to the style of the sacred writers. As it reads in Matthew 26:26:30:
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you; I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom. “When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
