Oct 20 11.16 At the evening hour, Jesus sat down with the twelve, saying, “I craved to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it is fulfilled in Gods kingdom. Then came rivalry as to who among the twelve was the greatest. Jesus told them, “Unbelievers have kings who lord it over them, which authorities are their benefactors.2 But with you, the greatest must be the least; and the leader, the servant.3 Who is greater, the one seated at the table or the one serving? Isnt it the one seated? But I came among you to serve.4 Because you have stood by me in my trials, I give you, as my Father gave me, a kingdom,5 so that you may dine with me in my kingdom and sit on thrones, ruling6 the twelve tribes of Israel.”
