A woman poured on Jesus’s head this very expensive perfume. A few hours later, he was to be taken to Calvary and to be crucified. This woman anointed Him for His burial, but as He was rejected, as He was broken, as He was scourged and crucified, the sweet smelling aroma was with Him. The fragrance was to Jesus a reminder of the presence of the Spirit, even on the cross. Jesus was anointed for the cross.
