And when the ten heard it, they began to be indignant at James and John. And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are called rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Disciples of Yeshu must be humble like him and live for others.
Yeshu came to to pay ransom (glud) for all mankind’s sin and evil, so that we might go free. He was the only perfect One without sin able to take away the crime of the many upon Himself as a kind of innocent scapegoat. No garment of gold for him in this life, but only – when he died – the dirty rags of our bad karma.
Yeshu Mashiga – what a Ransom King (glud-‘gong rgayl-po)!
