THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MARK - Chapter 12 - Verse 42

Verse 42. Two mites. The word translated mite denotes a small coin made of brass, the smallest in use among the Jews. The precise value cannot now be easily estimated. It was much less than any coin we have, as the farthing was less than an English farthing. It was in value about three mills and a half, or one third of a cent.

{2} "two mites" "7th part of that piece of brass money"
