Jesus wants to know what they want (Mk 10:36-10:36)

“Jesus said

To them.

‘What is it

You want me

To do for you?’”


ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Τί θέλετε με ποιήσω ὑμῖν;


There is something similar to this in Matthew, chapter 20:2, but here the brothers, rather than their mother spoke with Jesus.  Mark said that Jesus then asked the 2 brothers, (ὁ δὲ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς) what they wanted or wished Jesus to do for them (Τί θέλετε με ποιήσω ὑμῖν)?  Jesus willingly responded to them.  He wanted to know what was on their minds.
