5. Teaching the Disciples concerning Humility
and Foretelling What Will Happen to Them
24 1And a 2contention 1also occurred among them as to which of them seemed to be agreatest.
25 And He asaid to them, The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who have authority over them are called benefactors.
26 But you shall not be so; but let the agreatest among you become like the youngest, and the one who bleads like the one who 1serves.
27 For who is greater, the one who reclines at table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at table? But I am in your midst as the one who aserves.
