A Request By The Mother Of James And John

She knelt down to ask Him for something. 21 “What do you want?” He asked her.“Promise,” she said to Him, “that these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right and the other on Your left, in Your kingdom.” 22 But Jesus answered, “You don’t know what you’re asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?”“We are able,” they said to Him.
