     Explanation: On Tuesday of the Passion Week, after various discourses, Jesus sat near the treasury of the Temple watching people give their offerings. He called attention to a widow who made the smallest offering allowed, two mites, and said that she had given more than all of the others who were giving great gifts, because she gave all that she had to live on.

     Mark 12:41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much. Luke 21:1 And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. Luke 21:2 And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. Mark 12:42b which make a farthing. Mark 12:43 And he called unto him his disciples, and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow has cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: Mark 12:44 For all they did cast in of their abundance [Luke 21:4b unto the offerings of God]; but she of [Luke 21:4c her penury] (her want) did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
