He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
15 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it." 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."

"Good teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"

Then He took the twelve aside again and began to tell them the things that would happen to Him: 32 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 Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him.
33 "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death and deliver Him to the Gentiles; 33 "We are going up to Jerusalem," he said, "and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles,
34 and they will mock Him, and scourge Him, and spit on Him, and kill Him. And the third day He will rise again." 34 who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise."

39 They said to Him, "We are able." So Jesus said to them, "You will indeed drink the cup that I drink, and with the baptism I am baptized with you will be baptized; 39 "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,
40 but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared." 40 but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared."

43 Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,

46 Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. 46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (that is, the Son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging.
47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
48 Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" 48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
49 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man, saying to him, "Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you." 49 Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." So they called to the blind man, "Cheer up! On your feet! He's calling you."
50 And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus. 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
51 So Jesus answered and said to him, "What do you want Me to do for you?" The blind man said to Him, "Rabboni, that I may receive my sight." 51 "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him. The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see."
52 Then Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well." And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road. 52 "Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
