Jesus: your servant

Jesus: your servant
Background: The disciples had been contesting their place in their (expected) “pecking order”. Jesus gives them (us) a rebuke and gave a weighty explanation of his role in the flesh.

Jesus: told his betrayal

They were told; 
there was an agenda, but, whose was it?

The first four books of the New Testament, the Gospels, clearly recount that Jesus told his friends, and others, what was to befall him at the "end". The first (but different) such encounter in the text comes in John. (Was that the chronological first - I wonder? For the John pericope, see previous post: “Jesus: Lifted Up”.)

Matthew, Mark and Luke have several clear reports, with increasingly detailed words from Jesus.
