Jesus, the Woman, and Simon the Pharisee

In Luke 7: 41-42 Jesus tells a parable of a moneylender and two debtors. The parable states:

“A certain moneylender had two debtors. One owed five hundred  a denarii, and the other fifty. When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?”

Read Luke 7:36-50.
