But they remained silent because on the road they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. Bible see other translations

“greatest.” This record occurs in Matthew 18:1-5; Mark 9:33-37; and Luke 9:46-48. The word translated “greatest” is actually the comparative “greater.” The argument was about who was the greatest in the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 18:1). (See commentary on Luke 9:46).
