Introduction ~ This series is about questions involving Jesus. Some were asked by individuals involved with Jesus Christ while He walked on earth. Others are questions that Jesus Christ asked others. We will look at questions on about 130 topics (some may split into two or more posts). Even so, it is far from an exhaustive list.
Scripture ~ “Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, ‘Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask.’ And He said to them, ‘What do you want Me to do for you?’ They said to Him, ‘Grant us that we may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on Your left, in Your glory.’ But Jesus said to them, ‘You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?’ They said to Him, ‘We are able’ (Mark 10:35-39).
~ 1. Note what a selfish question it is—based upon pride (all sin has an element of pride). 2. Note, their unwarranted confidence! 3. Scripture teaches there will be rewards in heaven—but what presumption to expect the honored places on either side of our Master. 4. A parallel passage is located in Matthew 20:20-28.
