Jesus Foretells His Death a Third Time
17 And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve Friends who were ready to lay down their lives for the sake of Jesus and not the once-born spiritually blind disciples of the Rabbis, Pharisees, etc. aside, and on the way he said to them, 18 "See, we are going up to Jerusalem. And the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death 19 and deliver him over to the Gentiles, the once-born Temple soldiers as Pilate himself was once-born and so was Herrods to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day."
A Mother's Request
20 Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came up to him with her sons, and kneeling before him she asked him for something. 21 And he said to her, "What do you want?" She said to him, "Say that these two sons of mine are to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your kingdom." 22 Jesus answered, "You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am to drink? That is Preach Gospel from the Roof Tops as Jesus did Drink." They said to him, "We are able." 23 He said to them, "You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father. Jesus was the Foreman, the anointed Christ of our Father, Who is a Freeman with Freewill. No one can tell Him what He should do?" 24 And when the ten heard it, they were indignant at the two brothers. The Two were not of such a nature but their Mother might have acted of her own instincts as she was once-born. She had no ill will or feeling but being once-born, she tried to gain a favour for her sons. 25 But Jesus called them to him and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them as Lord masters do to their slaves. 26 It shall not be so among you because Jesus came to serve and not to Lord over people with slave Disciples but Friends, the sons of Most High. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, 28 even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many to set them Free of the yokes of Rabbis and today, we have Dog-Collared hypocrite hireling Priests worse than the Rabbis - Matt.12 v43-45."
Jesus Heals Two Blind Men
29 And as they went out of Jericho, a great crowd followed him. 30 And behold, there were two blind men sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" That is, even the blind knew that Jesus has come in the line of Angelic King David, then why the Rabbis could not recognise Jesus? Because they were hypocrites. 31 The crowd rebuked them, telling them to be silent, but they cried out all the more, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" 32 And stopping, Jesus called them and said, "What do you want me to do for you?" Because they reminded Jesus of King David in whose line He was supposed to come as the Second coming of Jesus in the Punjab was in the line of Shri Ram Chander. So, to honour his name, He healed the blind. 33 They said to him, "Lord, let our eyes be opened." 34 And Jesus in pity touched their eyes, and immediately they recovered their sight and joined and not followed him because they were twice-born of spirit.In Jesus, we are to be solitary. Much confused Trinity is explained.
