The Test of Greatness

46 1An argument astarted among them as to which of them might be the greatest. 47 But Jesus, 2knowing bwhat they were thinking in their heart, took a child and stood him by His side, 48 and said to them, "3Whoever receives this child in My name receives Me, and whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me; 4for the one who is least among all of you, this is the one who is great." 49 5John answered and said, "6Master, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name; and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow along with us." 50 But Jesus said to him, "Do not hinder him; 7for he who is not against you is cfor you." 51 When the days were approaching for 8His dascension, He ewas determined 9to go to Jerusalem; 52 and He sent messengers on ahead of Him, and they went and entered a village of the 10Samaritans to fmake arrangements for Him. 53 But they did not receive Him, 11because gHe was traveling toward Jerusalem. 54 When His disciples 12James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to 13command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?" 55 But He turned and rebuked them, [hand said, "You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; 56 for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them."] And they went on to another village.
