[13] The disciples displayed many tendencies to pride, selfishness, and unbelief. Luke 22:24-28 relays the account of the disciple’s argument. It is here where Jesus reverses the order of importance when he says, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those in authority over them are called benefactors. But not so with you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves.”

[14] R.T. France, The Gospel of Matthew: The New International Commentary on the New Testament (Grand Rapids, MI: William B. Eerdmans Pub, 2007), 1107.

[15] In John 14:12, Jesus tells his disciples, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.”

[19] Jesus’ interactions with the Samarian woman show this closed off perspective of the Jewish culture. Jews did not associate with Samarians. After Jesus introduced her to the living water, the twelve return, surprised: “They marveled that he was talking with a woman…” (John 4:27). This was astonishing for the day for two reasons. Women were not equal to men. For Jesus to accept and honor a woman was uncommon in the culture. This woman was also a Samarian, whom the Jews did not associate with as they were outside their culture.

[31] Luke 8 also recounts the purpose of parables. The disciples inquired as to the purpose of his parable. Jesus replies in verse 10, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God…” We see that both secrets and mysteries are revealed to the disciples.
