16#Matt. 19:16–29; Mark 10:17–30; Luke 18:18–30Now behold, one came and said to Him, #Luke 10:25“Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?”17So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is #Ps. 25:8; 34:8; Nah. 1:7; (Rom. 2:4)good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, #Lev. 18:5; Deut. 4:40; 6:17; 7:11; 11:22; 28:9; Neh. 9:29; Ezek. 20:21; (Gal. 3:10)keep the commandments.”18He said to Him, “Which ones?”Jesus said, #Ex. 20:13–16; Deut. 5:17–20‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ 19#Ex. 20:12–16; Deut. 5:16–20; Matt. 15:4‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, #Lev. 19:18; Matt. 22:39; (Rom. 13:9; Gal. 5:14; James 2:8)‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 20The young man said to Him, “All these things I have #(Phil. 3:6, 7)kept from my youth. What do I still lack?”21Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, #Matt. 6:20; Luke 12:33; Acts 2:45; 4:34, 35; 1 Tim. 6:18, 19go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.23Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that #(Matt. 13:22); Mark 10:24; 1 Cor. 1:26; (1 Tim. 6:9)it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”25When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”26But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but #Gen. 18:14; Num. 11:23; Job 42:2; Is. 59:1; Jer. 32:17; Zech. 8:6; Luke 1:37with God all things are possible.”
