They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him. “We are going up to Jerusalem,” he said, “and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles, who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise.”

Mark 10:32-34

Jesus called them together and said, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Mark 10:42-45

After he has suffered,
      he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
      and he will bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
      and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
      and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
      and made intercession for the transgressors.

Isaiah 53:11-12
