NO EXPENSE SPARED We know from John's account that the perfume Mary anointed Jesus with was worth 300 denarii, which is equal to a year's wages. So figure your annual salary, and you begin to have an idea about how expensive this gift was. But she poured it all out on Jesus in an act of worship. To Mary, no expense would be spared. Her great love for Jesus could only be expressed by giving her most prized possession. Breaking the bottle symbolized her brokenness before the Lord.
