In Mark 10 Jesus explains the Christian concept of Marriage: One man, one woman, one lifetime,“6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” Then  Jesus blesses the little children and says that “, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.” The Rich Young Ruler asks what he must do to receive eternal life, but he cannot do what is necessary, so Jesus says ” It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”  Jesus then  predicts his resurrection. James and John want to be great, but Jesus points out that Greatness comes by Serving and finally Jesus heals Bartimaeus.

Deuteronomy 2 tells of the first 38 years of wandering in the the Desert, the generation entering the desert has died off, then with the help of God King Sihon is Defeated.

Deuteronomy 3 tells how King Og Defeated and the Israelites conquer the land East of Jordan but Moses is forbidden to cross the Jordan and enter the Promised Land.
