So take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same pay that I gave you.
I can do what I want with my own money. Are you jealous because I am good to those people?'
"So those who have the last place now will have the first place in the future, and those who have the first place now will have the last place in the future."
While Jesus was going to Jerusalem, he took his twelve followers aside privately and said to them,
"Look, we are going to Jerusalem. The Son of Man will be turned over to the leading priests and the teachers of the law, and they will say that he must die.
They will give the Son of Man to the non-Jewish people to laugh at him and beat him with whips and crucify him. But on the third day, he will be raised to life again."
Then the wife of Zebedee came to Jesus with her sons. She bowed before him and asked him to do something for her.
Jesus asked, "What do you want?" She said, "Promise that one of my sons will sit at your right side and the other will sit at your left side in your kingdom."
But Jesus said, "You don't understand what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I am about to drink?" The sons answered, "Yes, we can."
Jesus said to them, "You will drink from my cup. But I cannot choose who will sit at my right or my left; those places belong to those for whom my Father has prepared them."
When the other ten followers heard this, they were angry with the two brothers.
