Matthew 20:17-28

In this most detailed prediction, Jesus will suffer at the hands of both the Jews and the Gentiles.  Crucifixtion is specifically named as the model of death.  Status in the kingdom was brought up previously by the disciples.  This time it is a mother who asks on behalf of her sons.  Jesus makes it very clear that it is not he who determines status in the kingdom.  In response to the indignation of the other disciples, Jesus goes on to teach about leadership grounded in service.

We pray this day for all leaders that they may see the merits of using their power to serve for the good of all.
