The Question About Who Is Greatest

While Jesus was at home, he asked the disciples, "What were you arguing about on the road?" 34 But they kept silent, because they had argued on the road with one another about who was the greatest. 35 So he sat down, called the Twelve, and told them, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be last of all and servant of all."
