The woman in this story touches Jesus and pours very expensive perfume on his feet - which surprises others who are there. They can’t understand why Jesus would let an unknown woman, who was not invited to the dinner, wash his feet with her hair and tears while rubbing expensive perfume on his feet.
In response to the disciples' reaction, Jesus explains how much love she had just shown him - that yes, this perfume is expensive, but sometimes love is worth more.
This woman showed an incredible amount of love for Jesus and she showed more love to Jesus than the disciples did. After the woman finished washing Jesus’ feet, he blessed the woman and praised her for showing so much eros or physical love towards him.
