Day 1 Friday

An important holiday called Passover was only six days away. Many people were coming to Jerusalem so they could offer sacrifices in the temple on that day. Jesus walked to Bethany, a village near Jerusalem. He would stay there for five nights with His friends Lazarus, Mary, and Martha. Mary anointed His feet with oil.  See John 12:1–3.

President Nelson admonishes: “When you spiritually stretch beyond anything you have ever done before, then His power will flow into you.”
