Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 12:5 - “Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred [fn]denarii and the proceeds given to poor people?
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 12:6 - Now he said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he kept the money box, he used to [fn]steal from what was put into it.
