13-Behold we go up to Jerusalem.

At that time. as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples apart and said to them: “Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests and the scribes: and they shall condemn him to death. And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified: and the third day he shall rise again.” 
Then came to him the mother of the sons of Zebedee with her sons, adoring and asking something of him. Who said to her: “What wilt thou?” She saith to him: “say that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left, in thy kingdom.” And Jesus answering, said: They say to him: “We can.” He saith to them: “You know not what you ask. Can you drink the chalice that I shall drink?””My chalice indeed you shall drink; but to sit on my right or left hand is not mine to give to you, but to them for whom it is prepared by my Father.” 
And the ten, hearing it, were moved with indignation against the two brethren. But Jesus called them to him and said: “You know that the princes of the Gentiles lord it over them; and that they that are the greater, exercise power upon them. It shall not be so among you: but whosoever is the greater among you, let him be your minister. And he that will be first among you shall be your servant. Even as the Son of man is not come to be ministered unto, but to minister and to give his life a redemption for many.”  Matthew 20:17-28

13-Behold we go up to Jerusalem.
