  25. 26. Matthew 26:39-46 <ul><li>42He went away a second time and prayed, &quot;My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.&quot; 43When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. 44So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. </li></ul>

  32. 33. Mark 10:35-40 <ul><li>  35Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. &quot;Teacher,&quot; they said, &quot;we want you to do for us whatever we ask.&quot;  36&quot;What do you want me to do for you?&quot; he asked. 37They replied, &quot;Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory.&quot;  38&quot;You don't know what you are asking,&quot; Jesus said. &quot;Can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?&quot; </li></ul>
  33. 34. Mark 10:35-40 <ul><li>39&quot;We can,&quot; they answered. Jesus said to them, &quot;You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with , 40but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared.&quot; 41When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John. </li></ul>
  34. 35. Mark 10:35-40 <ul><li>  42Jesus called them together and said, &quot;You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 43Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. 45For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.&quot; </li></ul>
