“Why wasn’t this oil sold for three hundred silver coins 1  and the money 2  given to the poor?”

NET © Notes

tn Grk “three hundred denarii.” The denarius was a silver coin worth a standard day’s wage, so the value exceeded what a laborer could earn in a year (taking into account Sabbaths and feast days when no work was done).

tn The words “the money” are not in the Greek text, but are implied (as the proceeds from the sale of the perfumed oil).
