An Alabaster Box

“An Alabaster Box” was performed during a live concert (April 1, 2018) celebrating Resurrection Sunday and our risen lord and savior, Jesus Christ. This song describes the Biblical event of a woman anointing Jesus’ head with oil from an alabaster box (Matthew 26:6-13; Mark 14:3-9). Jesus’ disciples criticized this woman for wasting the precious oil, but Jesus commended her. He declared, “Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.” This account of her loving act continues to inspire us today.
