The anointing at Bethany

Passover was approaching.  Would Jesus go to the Passover festival, since they wanted to arrest Jesus?  Jesus went to Bethany.  Martha served supper, while Mary anointed Jesus’ feet.  Judas Iscariot complained that the money spent on the oil could have helped the poor.  Judas was a thief, so that Jesus said to Judas to leave Mary alone.  He explained that they would always have poor people.  Meanwhile, everyone wanted to see Lazarus, the man who rose from the dead.  Thus, the Pharisees wanted to put Lazarus to death, because he was helping the people to believe in Jesus.  Do you believe that there will always be poor people?
