Matthew 20:24. Indignant 30 Aug 2023

Mat 20:24 When the other ten heard this
they were indignant with the two brothers.

A simple verse. Some things I observe:
1. How did the other ten came to know what had happened?
2. Ten got indignant at two. It divided the team of apostles.
3. The ten did not honestly express their own interests and thoughts. They might have wanted good future places near Jesus as well.
4. Just wondering what good purpose the indignation could serve. What good value does it represent?


Jesus, teach me about resolving conflicts.
