The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
25 I'd say it's easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye than for the rich to get into God's kingdom." 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
26 That set the disciples back on their heels. "Then who has any chance at all?" they asked. 26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, "Who then can be saved?"
27 Jesus was blunt: "No chance at all if you think you can pull it off by yourself. Every chance in the world if you let God do it." 27 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God."

32 Back on the road, they set out for Jerusalem. Jesus had a head start on them, and they were following, puzzled and not just a little afraid. He took the Twelve and began again to go over what to expect next. 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 "Listen to me carefully. We're on our way up to Jerusalem. When we get there, the Son of Man will be betrayed to the religious leaders and scholars. They will sentence him to death. Then they will hand him over to the Romans, 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 who will mock and spit on him, give him the third degree, and kill him. After three days he will rise alive." 34 who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise."
35 James and John, Zebedee's sons, came up to him. "Teacher, we have something we want you to do for us." 35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. "Teacher," they said, "we want you to do for us whatever we ask."
