Now the passover of the Jews was near; and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the passover, that they might purify themselves.

Now, when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,

And, while He was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as He was reclining at table, there came a woman having an alabaster cruse of ointment of pure spikenard, very costly; and, having broken the cruse, she was pouring it down on His bead.
He that was dead came forth, bound feet and hands with grave-clothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith to them, "Loose him, and let him go."
And there were some Greeks among those who came up to worship at the feast.
