“Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair…. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?....Then said Jesus, Let her alone: for she hath preserved this ointment until now, that she might anoint me in token of my burial. For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.”
John 12:3-8, footnote 7a; from Joseph Smith Translation
Story Behind the Art:
“I find it significant that before Christ washed the feet of His disciples, Mary of Bethany washed and anointed the feet of Christ. Mary, in her great act of humility, washed the feet of the Savior….She seemed to truly understand what the Savior meant when he taught, “Whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be the servant of all.” Mark 10:44
