"The rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and make their authority over them felt.  But it shall not be so among you."

Mark 10:35-45


The disciples of Jesus were not immune to temptations for power and prestige.  Despite all that Jesus had taught them, they still thought He had come to establish an earthly kingdom that would free them of the oppression of their Roman conquerors and Jewish leaders, particularly Herod, who was named King by Caesar, but was not a Jew.  They had visions of "Doing unto others what had been done to them."  Jesus ask if they could do what he knew he had to do.  They had no clue what he meant, but said, "Yes, we can."  Jesus does not condemn them for their human weakness of pride and envy, but he teaches them that their greatness will be determined, not by wealth, power and prestige, but by the way they serve others, by becoming a slave to all.  That certainly is not what James and John, or any of the other disciples had in mind.  It would not be until Jesus rose from the dead and served them meals that they would begin to understand.  We have their testimony in the Scripture that they understood.  Do we understand? 


Your servant in Christ,

Fr. Mick Greer
