Jesus was teaching the people about the hypocrisy of the scribes. He described them as lusting for recognition, seeking the best positions, stealing from the helpless, yet making a pretense of being religious (Mark 12: 38-40). Sitting in the women's court where the offering receptacles were located (2Kings 12:9), Jesus used one woman as an example. The comparison is spectacular.
