Yeshua was in Beit-Anyah, at the home of Shim‘on, the man who had had tzara’at (leprosy). A woman who had an alabaster jar filled with very expensive perfume approached Yeshua while he was eating and began pouring it on his head. When the talmidim saw it, they became very angry. “Why this waste?” they asked. “This could have been sold for a lot of money and given to the poor.” But Yeshua, aware of what was going on, said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing for me. The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. She poured this perfume on me to prepare my body for burial. Yes! I tell you that throughout the whole world, wherever this Good News is proclaimed, what she has done will be told in her memory.” Matthew 26: 6-13 CJB
One of the P’rushim invited Yeshua to eat with him, and he went into the home of the Parush and took his place at the table. A woman who lived in that town, a sinner, who was aware that he was eating in the home of the Parush, brought an alabaster box of very expensive perfume, stood behind Yeshua at his feet and wept until her tears began to wet his feet. Then she wiped his feet with her own hair, kissed his feet and poured the perfume on them.
Luke 7: 36-38 CJB
Between these two women, one anointing His head and the other His feet, they anointed our Master for burial completely. But what is interesting about the second woman is that she is forgiven of her sins and in so doing, anoints her old nature for burial as well. When we come to the feet of our Master Yeshua, we prepare ourselves and are anointed for burial. We then join the Messiah in His death and resurrection.
When the Messiah was executed on the stake as a criminal, I was too; so that my proud ego no longer lives. But the Messiah lives in me, and the life I now live in my body I live by the same trusting faithfulness that the Son of God had, who loved me and gave himself up for me.
Galatians 2:20 CJB
