Who came to talk with Jesus, the mother of James and John or James and John? MATTHEW 20:20 (cf. Mark 10:35)

MATTHEW 20:20 (cf. Mark 10:35)—Who came to talk Jesus, the mother of James and John or James and John?

PROBLEM: In Matthew, the mother of James and John made a request of Jesus. However, Mark states that James and John who came to Jesus to make request.

: is clear that both the mother and her sons came to Jesus to make the request, since the declares “the mother … came to her sons” (v. 20). is possible that the mother spoke first the two sons closely following to reiterate the request. This is supported by Matthew’s account because Jesus responds “are able to drink the cup that am about to drink?” the Bible says “they said to , ` are able’ ” (v.22). , there is no unsolvable conflict . The two accounts are harmonious.
