A notice on Sunday's Gospel.
Mark 10:32 They were on the road, going up
to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of
them; they were amazed, and those who followed
were afraid. He took the twelve aside again and
began to tell them what was to happen to him,
33 saying, “See, we are going up to Jerusalem,
and the Son of Man will be handed over to the
chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death; then they will hand him over
to the Gentiles; 34 they will mock him, and spit
upon him, and flog him, and kill him; and after
three days he will rise again.”
35 James and John, the sons of Zebedee,
came forward to him and said to him,
“Teacher, we want you to do for us
whatever we ask of you.” 36 And he
said to them, “What is it you want me to
do for you?” 37 And they said to him,
“Grant us to sit, one at your right hand
and one at your left, in your glory.” 38
But Jesus said to them, “You do not
know what you are asking. Are you able
to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptised with the baptism that I am baptised
with?” 39 They replied, “We are able.”
Then Jesus said to them, “The cup that I
drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptised, you will
be baptised; 40 but to sit at my right
hand or at my left is not mine to grant,
but it is for those for whom it has been
prepared.”
41 When the ten heard this, they began
to be angry with James and John. 42 So
Jesus called them and said to them, “You
know that among the Gentiles those
whom they recognise as their rulers lord
it over them, and their great ones are
tyrants over them. 43 But it is not so
among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your
servant, 44 and whoever wishes to be
first among you must be slave of all. 45
For the Son of Man came not to be
served but to serve, and to give his life a
ransom for many.”
