The Truth About the Widow’s Gift (1 of 2)
George Greene presents a full explanation of the Widow’s Gift recorded in the Bible in Mark 12:38-44. After identifying the benefits for the intended audience, he then studies the Law in the Old Testament to determine how widows were supposed to be treated. This is needed to fully understand the issue Jesus was teaching his soon-to-be religious leaders. A closer look at what Jesus said reveals that the widow was being plundered by religious leaders. The widow’s gift is NOT an example for Christian generosity.
