Mark 10:41-45 – The True Minister

|| Matthew 20:24-28;[1] Luke 22:24-27

MK10:41 Now when the other ten [apostles] heard of this they were very indignant.[2] MK10:42 Then Jesus asked them all to approach and told them: “You are quite aware that those who seem to rule the non-Jews lord it over them, and their ‘great ones’ exercise authority over them. MK10:43 But, it should not be the same among you.[3] Instead, whoever will actually be ‘great’ among you shall be your servant. MK10:44 Also, whoever will be ‘first’ among you must be the servant of everyone. MK10:45 For even the Son of Humankind [Daniel 7:13] came not to be served, but rather to serve, and to give his soul a ransom in exchange for many.”[4]

[1] Matthew 20:24-28: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] They were very indignant: We can see the ongoing problem with jealous ambition among the apostles.

[3] It should not be the same among you: Jesus is speaking to his twelve apostles. They are not to have one of their members lording it over the others. Such heavy authority did finally arise in the Church as foretold. [Acts 20:29, 30; 2 Thessalonians 2:4] This did not mean there was no legitimate “authority” within the Church. Compare notes on Titus 2:15 and Hebrews 13:7, 17.

[4] Give his soul a ransom in exchange for many: Or, WEY: as the redemption-price; GDS: to free many others. The Greek uses POLLON [much] and not PANTA [all]. Though the ransom of Christ is available to ALL it will actually only cover MANY. [Matthew 20:28; 1 Timothy 2:4-6]
