The Highest Places of Honor
35 James and John, Zebedee’s sons, came up to him. “Teacher, we have something we want you to do for us.”
36 “What is it? I’ll see what I can do.”
37 “Arrange it,” they said, “so that we will be awarded the highest places of honor in your glory—one of us at your right, the other at your left.”
38 Jesus said, “You have no idea what you’re asking. Are you capable of drinking the cup I drink, of being baptized in the baptism I’m about to be plunged into?”
39-40 “Sure,” they said. “Why not?”
Jesus said, “Come to think of it, you will drink the cup I drink, and be baptized in my baptism. But as to awarding places of honor, that’s not my business. There are other arrangements for that.”
41-45 When the other ten heard of this conversation, they lost their tempers with James and John. Jesus got them together to settle things down. “You’ve observed how godless rulers throw their weight around,” he said, “and when people get a little power how quickly it goes to their heads. It’s not going to be that way with you. Whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave. That is what the Son of Man has done: He came to serve, not to be served—and then to give away his life in exchange for many who are held hostage.”
Mark 10:35-45 The Message
The request of James and John
The brothers were ambitious, they wanted the chief places in Jesus’ kingdom. They had been with Jesus on special occasions and may also have thought they should be given this honour because they were his relatives.
The cup Jesus speaks of is the experience of his pain and death. The baptism was to be a terrible experience of suffering and death. The brothers answer they can drink from this cup and endure this baptism but they did not really believe Jesus would suffer this fate. Jesus said that final decisions belong to God, while he lived a human life, he did not claim his rights as God. He always obeyed his Father’s wishes.
The other disciples heard of this and were angry and jealous. They considered themselves just as important as James and John. Jesus explained about greatness, a person is not ‘great’ just because he has power and authority. In Jesus’ kingdom, the ‘great’ person is the person who is a servant. Jesus himself came into the world as a servant. He paid the great cost of pain and death to set all people free.
God, my God, how great you are!
beautifully, gloriously robed,
Dressed up in sunshine,
and all heaven stretched out for your tent.
You built your palace on the ocean deeps,
made a chariot out of clouds and took off on wind-wings.
You commandeered winds as messengers,
appointed fire and flame as ambassadors.
You set earth on a firm foundation
so that nothing can shake it, ever.
You blanketed earth with ocean,
covered the mountains with deep waters;
Then you roared and the water ran away—
your thunder crash put it to flight.
Mountains pushed up, valleys spread out
in the places you assigned them.
You set boundaries between earth and sea;
never again will earth be flooded. Amen.
Psalm 104:1-9 The Message
