Mark 10

Things we know for sure about Jesus from Mark 10:

Jesus went across the Jordan into Judea
Jesus taught the people that came to him
Jesus was tested by the Pharisees about divorce
Jesus asked about Moses’ law on the matter of divorce
Jesus told them that divorce was permitted only because their hearts were hardened
Jesus said that anyone who divorce his or her spouse and remarries is guilty of adultery
Jesus had people bring their children to him so that he would bless them
Jesus rebuked the disciples when they rebuked the parents bringing the children to him
Jesus told the disciples to let the children come to him and that anyone who prevented this would never enter God’s kingdom
Jesus welcomed children and blessed them
Jesus was called a good teacher by a young man

Jesus answered the question about inheriting eternal life by telling him to keep the commandments
Jesus told the man to sell all that he had and give the money to the poor and only then could he inherit eternal life
Jesus said that it is hard for a wealthy man to inherit eternal life, so hard that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle that for a rich man to enter heaven

Jesus called his disciples together and told them that it was the humble ones who were the real leaders
Jesus came to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many
