Mark 10:35-45

In this week’s passage, we come to a scene which immediately follows Jesus’
third announcement of His death and resurrection. While James and John were uncertain
about all the details, they had confidence that Jesus would ultimately be victorious,
and they wanted to partake of the greatness. The only problem is that they were motivated
by selfish ambition (v35-37), manifesting arrogant overconfidence (v38-40), which
was demonstrating an ugly competitiveness (v41-42). They wanted to be great, but
they didn’t understand the path to true greatness in God’s Kingdom. By drawing their
attention back to His coming crucifixion, Jesus teaches them the lesson that the path to
true greatness is humility (v43-45).
