35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the
waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep
on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto
him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and
said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind
ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful?
how is it that ye have no faith?
41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to
another, What manner of man is this, that even
the wind and the sea obey him?
John 12:1-10 GNV
1 Six days before the Passover, Jesus went to
Bethany, the home of Lazarus, the man he had
raised from death.
2 They prepared a dinner for him there, which
Martha helped serve; Lazarus was one of those
who were sitting at the table with Jesus.
3 Then Mary took a whole pint of a very expensive
perfume made of pure nard, poured it on Jesus’
feet, and wiped them with her hair. The sweet
smell of the perfume filled the whole house.
4 One of Jesus’ disciples, Judas Iscariot—the one
who was going to betray him—said,
5 “Why wasn’t this perfume sold for three hundred
silver coins and the money given to the poor?”
6 He said this, not because he cared about the
poor, but because he was a thief. He carried the
money bag and would help himself from it.
7 But Jesus said, “Leave her alone! Let her keep
what she has for the day of my burial.
8 You will always have poor people with you, but
you will not always have me.”
9 A large number of people heard that Jesus was
in Bethany, so they went there, not only because
of Jesus but also to see Lazarus, whom Jesus had
raised from death.
10 So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus too,

Mark 14:3-5 GNV
3 Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon,
a man who had suffered from a dreaded skin
disease. While Jesus was eating, a woman came
in with an alabaster jar full of a very expensive
perfume made of pure nard. She broke the jar
and poured the perfume on Jesus’ head.
4 Some of the people there became angry and
said to one another, “What was the use of
wasting the perfume?
5 It could have been sold for more than three
hundred silver coins and the money given to the
poor!” And they criticized her harshly.

7 “If in any of the towns in the land that the Lord

then do not be selfish and refuse to help them.
8 Instead, be generous and lend them as much as
