Masters and Servants

#bible study #greeknewtestament #matthew #gospel

MATTHEW 23: 11-12

He who is greater than or greatest of you will be of you a servant.

and whoever makes higher himself will be humbled
and whoever humbles himself will be raised up higher.

hupoosei is usually translated exalted but it is literally  raise up or make higher in position and status

note that both verbs are future or future passives - ending in theesetai

Are these two verses a request or a description of the ideal for Christian or any other forms of leadership?

Next week something lighter for the midweek posts BIRDS

Have you read Aristophanes play with this title?

Read it and Matthew 23 please
