At the point when a corrupt lady in that town discovered that Jesus was there, she purchased a costly jug of aroma. At that point she came and remained behind Jesus. She cried and began washing His feet with her tears and drying them with her hair. The lady kissed His feet and poured the aroma on them.

The Pharisee who had welcomed Jesus saw this and said to himself, 'If this man truly were a prophet, He would recognize what sort of lady is touching Him! He would realize that she is a heathen.' Jesus said to the Pharisee, 'Simon, I have something to state to you.' 'Instructor, what is it?' Simon answered. Jesus let him know, 'Two individuals were paying off debtors to a cash bank. One of them owed him five hundred silver coins, and the other owed him fifty.

Since neither of them could pay him back, the cash loan specialist said that they didn't need to pay him anything. Which one of them will like him more?' Simon replied, 'I assume it would be the person who had owed increasingly and didn't need to pay it back.' 'You are correct,' Jesus said. He moved in the direction of the lady and said to Simon, 'Have you seen this lady?

When I came into your home, you didn't give me any water so I could wash my feet. In any case, she has washed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. You didn't welcome me with a kiss, however from the time I came in she has not quit kissing my feet. You didn't pour olive oil on my head, yet she has poured costly fragrance on my feet. So I let you know that every one of her transgressions are excused, and that is the reason she has demonstrated extraordinary love. However, any individual who has been excused for just a little will demonstrate just a little love.'
