Peter said to him, "We have left everything to follow you!"129"I tell you the truth," Jesus replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel30will fail to receive a hundred times as much2 in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields--and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come,3 eternal life.431But many who are first will be last, and the last first."5
They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve6 aside and told them what was going to happen to him.
33"We are going up to Jerusalem,"7 he said, "and the Son of Man8 will be betrayed to the chief priests and teachers of the law.9 They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles,34who will mock him and spit on him, flog him10 and kill him.11 Three days later12 he will rise."13
Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. "Teacher," they said, "we want you to do for us whatever we ask."
36"What do you want me to do for you?" he asked.
They replied, "Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory."1438"You don't know what you are asking,"15 Jesus said. "Can you drink the cup16 I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?"1739
"We can," they answered. Jesus said to them, "You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with,1840but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared."41
When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John.
