Inverting the World's Values (19:1-20:16)

Jesus' male contemporaries valued the great and powerful; Jesus summoned status-seeking men to love their wives and children. The world valued wealth; Jesus summoned his followers to sacrifice all for the kingdom, caring for the poor (19:21; compare 6:19-24). Only those who prepared for such sacrifices could enter the coming kingdom.
