116. Visiting the Temple; The Widow’s Mites

        10And when he entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, “Who is this?” 11And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth of Galilee.”
        11And he entered Jerusalem and went into the temple.
        41And he sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the multitude putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. 42And a poor widow came, and put in two mites, which make a penny.
        43And he called his apostles to him, and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. 44For they all contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, her whole living.”
        11And when he had looked round at everything, as it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
