Greek Bible Art: Christ in the House of Simon

The image shows Christ in the House of Simon by Dieric Bouts the Elder (source). This verse is from Luke 7:47.

ἀφέωνται αἱ ἁμαρτίαι αὐτῆς αἱ πολλαί, ὅτι ἠγάπησεν πολύ.
Remittuntur ei peccata multa, quoniam dilexit multum.
Her sins, which are many, are forgiven for she loved much.
