Jesus shakes the foundation of the world by what he reveals to the disciples here. Our humanity tells us, from the very minute we are born, that we are number one, and that our needs should always come first. As we get older, we understand better, but this inherent human trait never really leaves us. The history books are written by those with power; we see it time and time again. Wars have been fought and billions of lives taken over this concept of trying to be at the top. Jesus unravels all this by his example, and by his words that go against what our human nature tells us: “The son of man did not come into this world to be served, but instead to serve others, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” This is the Jesus difference!
