Just a Bunch of Guys – Mark 10:35-45
One of the favourite topics of the disciples is the question how incredibly great people they are. Who is the best, who is the most faithful, the most effective, best looking, in short who is the ultimate apostle and the epitome of coolness? Jesus deals a lot with those pressing questions. And so do we. Who among us is the greatest? – And what do we get as a reward? Maybe we get to hang around Jesus throne in heaven? But then, after Pentecost, something happens to the apostles who the gospels often portray as a bunch of guys who are a bit slow in the uptake. All of them, with one possible exception die a martyr’s death. Given the fact that the Roman Empire makes recanting relatively simple, it seems that they have found something that they value more than even their lives.
