For this morning, I want you to turn to the twelfth chapter of Mark and we'll wrap up the end of this chapter. Now if what I say to you sounds a little bit familiar, it's because in the year 2007, about March of that year, that would be four years ago exactly, we were at this same point in the ministry of Jesus in the gospel of Luke...in the gospel of Luke. So what we were reading and understanding in Luke, we now come to in Mark. We will remember, those of us who were here four years ago, this passage, Luke's version of it which is parallel to Mark's. You'll discover that when I read it to you.

And He sat down opposite the treasury and began observing how the people were putting money into the treasury and many rich people were putting in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins which amount to a cent. Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, 'Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury for they all put in out of their surplus, but she out of her poverty put in all she owned, all she had to live on.'"...
