Jesus confided in the twelve concerning his impending journey to Jerusalem. Instead of supporting Jesus, jealousy surfaced. James and John made their play for places of honor in heaven. Jesus gently reminded them all of the “great reversal” of things in God’s kingdom. The first shall be last, the greatest will serve, and those who wished to live, must first die.
