"In Memory Of Her"
Just before the Passover when He was to be Crucified (see The Fateful Night and How Did Jesus Christ Die?), while Jesus "was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, a woman came up to Him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on His head, as He sat at table." (Matthew 26:6-7 RSV).
When those who were with Jesus saw what she did, they were upset with the lady, and criticized her for "wasting" the perfume. They said that it could have been sold at a good price and the money given to the poor. The response of Jesus was very different however. He made a prophecy that absolutely guaranteed her place in Bible History:
This simple little prediction by Jesus Christ is an excellent example for those who seek the proof that prophecy is real, was made long ago, and will be fulfilled when the appointed time comes. Those words survived and travelled nearly 20 centuries from the mouth of Jesus Christ right to every person who reads or hears it. Your reading of those words causes that Biblical prophecy to again be fulfilled, this time in you.
