Part 1. Jesus’ third prediction of his destiny (v. 32-34)
Then people will mock Him, spit upon Him, whip Him, and kill Him. But on the third day, He will rise again. (Mark 10:34)
Part 2. Discipleship bogus and bona fide (v. 35-45)
You know that among the nations of the world the great ones lord it over the little people and act like tyrants. But that is not the way it will be among you. Whoever would be great among you must serve and minister. Whoever wants to be great among you must be slave of all. Even the Son of Man came not to be served but to be a servant—to offer His life as a ransom for others. (Mark 10:42-45)
Part 3. Bartimaeus (verses 46-52)
Bartimaeus cast aside his beggar’s robe and stepped forward, feeling his way toward Jesus.
Jesus: What do you want from Me?
Bartimaeus: Teacher, I want to see.
Jesus: Your faith has made you whole. Go in peace.
In that moment, Bartimaeus could see again; and from that time on, he followed Jesus. (Mark 10:50-52)
