Description: A genuine 2000+ year old Jewish bronze coin of the type used by Jesus as an illustration of the way God looks at giving as recorded in the gospels of Luke and Mark chapters 21 and 12 respectivly. Jesus observed a very poor widow placing two of these tiny coins into the temple treasury and said that she actually gave MORE than all of the other givers combined. The rich people poured in vast amounts of wealth to be seen and applauded my observers. Jesus stated that while the rich gave only a tiny portion from their vast wealth she gave all she had to live on and trusted God for her provision. Jesus was teaching that God measures giving not by the amount but by the intentions.
