(1-5) The Plot to Kill Jesus
Once again, Jesus the Christ forewarns His disciples of His coming crucifixion.
(6-13) Jesus Anointed at Bethany
Perhaps this woman had also heard that people were out to kill Jesus. She was aware of His coming crucifixion and by pouring the ointment on His head, she prepared Him for burial. Without any regard to the criticism of others, she lavishly gave to the One Who was about to die for her sins. Because Christ has done the greatest work for us, we should do good work for Him.

When Jesus the Christ called Judas Iscariot to be one of His disciples, He knew that Judas would betray Him. Christ did not make Judas betray Him for thirty pieces of silver. Judas made that decision on his own. However, all the decisions and choices of humanity – whether good or bad – are taken and bended by God for His plan and purpose to be accomplished on earth as it is in Heaven.
