                         "THE GOSPEL OF MARK"

                              Chapter Ten

Arriving in Judea, Jesus is questioned by Pharisees on the subject of
divorce (1-12).  Little children were brought for Him to bless and
Jesus did so over initial objections of His disciples, teaching them the
value of childlike reception of the kingdom of God (13-16). When a
rich young ruler questioned Him concerning eternal life (17-22), He
used the occasion to teach His disciples about riches in relation to the 
kingdom of God (23-31).  For a third time  (cf. Mk 8:31-33; 9:30-32)
Jesus predicted His death and resurrection (32-34), then used a request
by James and John to teach His apostles the value of servitude (35-45).
Leaving Jericho, Jesus healed blind Bartimaeus (46-52).
