INTRODUCTION. One day a man came to Jesus and asked a question. Matthew says the man was young (Matt. 19:20, 22). Mark says he came running and knelt before Jesus (Mark 10:17). Luke says he was a ruler (Luke 18:18). All three gospel writers–Matthew, Mark and Luke–say he was rich. Therefore, this story is about a rich young ruler.

The rich young ruler was anxious to ask Jesus a question, for he ran to him. He also showed great reverence for Jesus, because he knelt before him. However, when Jesus told him he must choose between his possessions and Jesus, he went away sorrowfully, for his earthly riches were more important to him than the treasures in heaven.
