Item Description:
Widow's Mite: A Biblical Story As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in her two mites. "Truly I tell you," he said, "this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on." Luke 21:1-4 The Christian lesson of the Widow's Mites, as relayed in Luke (21:1-4) and Mark (12:41-44), is an enduring testament to the value of faith. A destitute widow has only a few mites, ancient pennies, to her name and those she gave selflessly as her donation to the Temple. Jesus comments that her modest gift was worth more than the ostentatious contributions of the wealthy, for her mites represented all that she had. This virtuous woman had demonstrated true Christian faith in God: she could not know from where her next meal would come, but she believed that He would provide for her. During the life of Jesus Christ the mite was the smallest denomination of any Judean coin. These bronze Widow's Mites were minted at a time in Jewish history when Israel was a self-governing nation. These coins encompass a historical value that cannot be rivaled. Each coin comes housed in a museum grade plastic holder and certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
