James and John approach Jesus with the request that they might sit, one on his right hand and the other on his left hand, when he comes in his kingdom.
Jesus addresses their misunderstanding of the nature of kingdom (they don’t even get that the King is about to die) and He teaches a lesson about humility.
Jesus says rivalries concerning who is the greatest are a part of worldly kingdoms but his kingdom is different. Who is the greatest in God’s kingdom? How does Jesus set The example of true greatness?
