This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mar 9:35. Καθίσας, ἐφώνησε, τοὺς δώδεκα, sitting down, He called, the Twelve) solemnly.-ἔσχατος-διάκονος, the last-servant) These two words differ. He who is the last is not by that very fact proved to be a servant. Therefore the ἔσται has rather this force, he ought to be, than, he shall be, by way of punishment. For a servant [minister] implies something of a voluntary character.
