Holy Week: Wednesday

On this day Jesus visited the home of Simon the Leper. Here he ate supper with his disciplines and a woman named Mary anointed his feet with expensive oils.

His disciples were angered that Jesus did not sell the oil and give the money to charity. Later, Judas, a spy among the disciples, conspired to turn him over to the Sanhedrin for 30 silver pieces. This day is often called, “Spy Wednesday,” recalls Jesus’ betrayal by a member of his inner circle.
