28. Teaching concerning the Way to the Throne
35 1And James and John, the sons of aZebedee, came to Him, saying to Him, Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we bask You.
36 And He said to them, What do you want Me to ado for you?
37 And they said to Him, Grant to us to asit, one on Your right and one on Your left, in Your bglory.
38 But Jesus said to them, You do anot know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the 1bcup which I drink, or to be baptized with the 1baptism with which I am baptized?
39 And they said to Him, We are able. And Jesus said to them, The cup which I drink you shall drink, and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you shall be baptized.
40 But to sit on My right or on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.
41 And when the ten heard this, they began to be indignant concerning James and John.
42 And Jesus called them to Him and asaid to them, You know that those who are esteemed as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.
43 But it is not so among you; but whoever wants to become agreat among you shall be your servant,
44 And whoever wants to be first among you shall be the aslave of all.
45 For even the 1Son of Man did not come to be served, but to aserve and to bgive His 2life as a 3cransom for dmany.
