region of Judea, and beyond the Jordan; and crowds gathered around Him again, and,
according to His custom, He once more began to teach them.
MAR 10:2 ¶ And some Pharisees came up to Him, testing Him, and began to question Him whether it was lawful for a man to divorce a wife.
MAR 10:3 And He answered and said to them, "What did Moses command you?"
MAR 10:4 And they said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away."
MAR 10:5 But Jesus said to them, "Because of your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment.
MAR 10:6 "But from the beginning of creation, God made them male and female.
MAR 10:7 "For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother,

|MAT 19:16 ¶ And behold, one came to Him and
said, "Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?"
MAT 19:17 And He said to him, "Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments."
MAT 19:18 He said to Him, "Which ones?" And Jesus said, "You shall not commit murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness;
MAT 19:19 Honor your father and mother; and You shall love your neighbor as yourself. "
MAT 19:20 The young man said to Him, "All these things I have kept; what am I still lacking?"
MAT 19:21 Jesus said to him, "If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."

Prediction of the Resurrection (road to Jerusalem)
|MAT 20:17 ¶ And as Jesus was about to go up to
He took the twelve disciples aside by themselves, and on the way He said to them,
|MAR 10:32 ¶ And they were on the road, going up
to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking on ahead of them; and they were amazed, and those who
followed were fearful. And again He took the twelve aside and began to tell them what was
going to happen to Him,
MAR 10:33 saying, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and will deliver Him to the Gentiles.
MAR 10:34 "And they will mock Him and spit upon Him, and scourge Him, and kill Him, and three days later He will rise again."
Seek to Serve, Not Be Served
|MAT 20:20 ¶ Then the mother of the sons of
Zebedee came to Him with her sons, bowing down, and making a request of Him.
MAT 20:21 And He said to her, "What do you wish?" She said to Him, "Command that in Your kingdom these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right and one on Your left."
MAT 20:22 But Jesus answered and said, "You do not know what you are asking for. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?"
MAT 20:24 And hearing this, the ten became indignant with the two brothers.
|MAR 10:35 ¶ And James and John, the two sons of
Zebedee, came up to Him, saying to Him, "Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever
we ask of You."
MAR 10:36 And He said to them, "What do you want Me to do for you?"
MAR 10:37 And they said to Him, "Grant that we may sit in Your glory, one on Your right, and one on Your left."
MAR 10:38 But Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking for. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?"
MAR 10:39 And they said to Him, "We are able." And Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink you shall drink; and you shall be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized.
MAR 10:40 "But to sit on My right or on My left, this is not Mine to give; but it is for those for whom it has been prepared."
MAR 10:41 And hearing this, the ten began to feel indignant with James and John.
MAR 10:42 And calling them to Himself, Jesus said to them, "You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them.
MAR 10:43 "But it is not so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant;
MAR 10:44 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.
MAR 10:45 "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
|LUK 18:35 ¶ And it came about that as He was
approaching Jericho, a certain blind man was sitting by the road, begging.

want to regain my sight!"
