The Rich and the Kingdom of God

19:16–29pp—Mk 10:17–30; Lk 18:18–30

16 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal lifed?”e

17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”f
