Mark 10-13-31 – Jesus talked a lot about money while he was on earth: more than heaven and hell combined, more than anything else except the Kingdom of God, 11 of 39 parables talk about money.
Mark arranges these two settings so that the point of the entire passage, is introduced in a positive way in the first story. That’s what Jesus does: Starts with a positive example of the point he’s going to make.
The irony is this: The dependent child, possesses nothing, but has the kingdom. The independent man, possesses everything, but does not have the kingdom.+
