The widow was mistaken

It’s possible that the story of the “widow’s mite” was about not generosity but exploitation.

Wasn’t Jesus like an Old Testament prophet raging against religious institutions that were so pervasively unjust that, instead of protecting the most vulnerable, like the widow, they could mystify them into supporting the very system that exploited them?

It’s a fascinating perspective.
