James and John must have known that their request was born of pride, for they were unwilling to make it themselves: they sent their poor mother, whose piety was naïve and simple. So Jesus does not answer her, but them directly: Ye know not what ye ask. And when the request, to sit on Jesus' right and left hand in his kingdom, was made clear to the others, they became indignant, an indignance born of their pride. So Jesus had to teach them of humility, for pride is deadly and fierce, and leads to death. So the antidote is to consider him, the son of man, who came in humility to give his life a ransom for many. Sermon for Trinity XIII Midweek.
