Notes:

Matthew 20:20-28 The mindset of a Christian is entirely different than that of the world. It is the opposite.

The mother of John and James was a regular member of the disciple group (Matt. 27:55-56).

19:28
The thrones are already assured; the question is precedence. James and John along with Peter were the inner circle.

22
The cup is a metaphor for destined suffering. The connection Jesus placed on the cup and throne is interesting -- suffering and the glory. They responded that they were able, but both ran when Jesus was taken.

23
-- In the future, they would drink the cup of suffering. James is killed in Acts 12:2, and John perhaps in his imprisonment on Patmos.

24
The ten others are no freer of ambition than the two brothers.

27
-- Greatness among the disciples of Jesus are the reverse of what the world is used to. True greatness is in service.

28
-- Our service will be different from Jesus’, but its motivation must be the same, not to be served but to serve.

Philippians 2:1-3
The opposite of the concerns that were of John and James.

4-13
Fear and trembling basically means respect and humility.

Romans 1:1
Paul was a slave to the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 7:23
You are bought with a price -- the life of Jesus. You are not your own.

Galatians 6:16-17
We have the big C brand -- Christ our Lord.

Galatians 1:10-12


Psalm 25:15
The bond slave keeps his eye on the Master.

Ephesians 6:5-9; 2 Timothy 2:22-26


Romans 6:16ff
You are going to be a slave for someone or something; why not Yahweh and our Lord Jesus the Christ?

Revelation 1:1; 22:1-7
Bond slaves are the ones revelation was written to.
