(Mt. 20:17-19, Mk. 10:32-34, Lk. 18: 31-34, Mt. 20:20-28, Mk. 10:35-45)
On the way to Jerusalem, Christ predicted his betrayal, sufferings, death, and resurrection for the third time. Immediately after that, the mother of the frightened and surprised apostles John and James asked Christ that her sons sit with Him in the Kingdom of Heaven, one on His right side, the other on His left. Christ answered and presented the true Christian understanding of service — in order to be first, one needs to be last, and in order to become a master, one needs to be a servant.
