      My answer would change depending on what country I was addressing because the average annual income for each country of the world is different and would be different at various times throughout history. In John 12:5 Judas, Christ’s betrayer asked an angry question, “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages.” The wages Judas was referring to would have been that for an average worker of the day. How I came up with the rough estimate I stated in this podcast was to google the average income for the USA which is a little higher that $56,000. It was just that simple. Thanks for the question and hope this helps.
