Jesus tells the parable of the vineyard workers and another parable of the ten servants, talks about his imminent death, heals some blind men, and eats dinner with Zacchaeus the tax collector Pharisee and the tax collector, talks about divorce, blesses some children, then shows a rich man he has to love Jesus enough to sell everything to follow Him: Matthew 20:1–16; Mark 10:32–34; Matthew 20:17–19; Luke 18:31–34; Mark 10:35–45; Matthew 20:20–34; Mark 10:46–52; Luke 18:35–19:27

On the way toward Jerusalem (but before they reached Jericho), Jesus again warned His disciples that He would die:

Luke 18:31-34 Listen, we’re going up to Jerusalem, where all the predictions of the prophets concerning the Son of Man will come true. He will be handed over to the Gentiles (or Romans), and he will be mocked, treated shamefully, and spit upon. They will flog him with a whip and kill him, but on the third day he will rise again.

Unlike last time, nobody argued, but it seems the disciples didn’t really understand what He meant anyway.
