The two passages in Matthew and Mark about he Sons of Zebedee are at odds.
Matthew 20:20 Reads:
“Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Him with her sons, kneeling down and asking something from Him. And He said to her, ‘What do you wish?’ She said to Him, ‘Grant that these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on the left, in Your kingdom.”
Mark 10:35 Reads:
“Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Him, saying, ‘Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask. And He said to them, ‘What do you want Me to do for you?’ They said to Him, “Grant us that we may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on Your left, in Your glory.”
In Matthew, it is the mother asking. In Mark, the sons are portrayed as asking.
