ΕΥΑΓΓΕΛΙΚΗ ΠΕΡΙΚΟΠΗ ΠΕΜΠΤΗΣ ΚΥΡΙΑΚΗΣ ΤΩΝ ΝΗΣΤΕΙΩΝ FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT
At that time, Jesus taking the twelve aside, he began to tell them the things that would happen to Him.
“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;
and they will mock Him, and scourge Him, and spit on Him, and Kill Him. And the third day He will rise again”.
Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, “Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask”.
But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, and be baptised with the baptism that I am baptised with?”
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 baptised with you will be baptised.
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.”
And when the ten heard it, they began to be greatly displeased with James and John.
But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.
Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant.
And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
(Mark 10 : 32-45)
