29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve (Mk 10. 45)

 

In this reading James and John request positions of honour in the coming Kingdom. In reply Jesus asks if they can share his cup and baptism. The images refer to the suffering and death that await him.

 

Here the metaphor of drinking the cup refers to acceptance of the destiny assigned by God, which involves divine judgment of sin that Jesus, the innocent one, is to expiate on behalf of the guilty. His “baptism” will be Crucifixion and Death for the salvation of the human race. James’ and John’s request for a share in the glory involves a share in Jesus’ sufferings, the endurance of trial and suffering for the Gospel. He names his Passion “baptism,” a word that indicates his sufferings will be the font of the purification for the whole world. Their fervour makes them give the spontaneous response “We are able” without knowing what they are committing themselves to, but with the hope that in some way they will get what they desire.

 

As earlier, the disciples’ failure to understand leads Jesus to teach about service. True greatness lies not in wielding authority over others, but in being the servant or slave of all –a theme that dominates Jesus’ teaching. Whatever authority is to be exercised by the disciple must, like that of Jesus, be rendered as service to others rather than for personal aggrandizement. Jesus’ service is his Passion and Death for the redemption of the human race. As a clinching argument, Jesus presents himself as an example in his role as Son of Man, who came not to be served but to serve. By implication, any follower of the Son of Man can do no less.
