Elijah Receiving Bread from the Widow of Zarephath, 1621 - 1624
J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles.
Elijah the prophet went to Zarephath.
As he arrived at the entrance of the city,
a widow was gathering sticks there; he called out to her,
"Please bring me a small cupful of water to drink."
She left to get it, and he called out after her,
"Please bring along a bit of bread."
1 Kings 17:10-11
The Great High Priest, no information
Christ did not enter into a sanctuary made by hands,
a copy of the true one, but heaven itself,
that he might now appear before God on our behalf.
Unknown Artist. The Widow’s Mite. Basilica di Sant’Apollinare Nuovo. Ravenna ITALY. 6th century"Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more
than all the other contributors to the treasury.
For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth,
but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had,
her whole livelihood."
