What Is Different Is Not The Same: 018

Matthew 20:20

20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

20 Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him.

20 Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came up to him with her sons, and kneeling before him she asked him for something.

20 Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came to him with her sons, and kneeling before him, she asked a favor of him.

James and John worshipped Jesus because they knew he is God. 

They did not merely kneel to humbly ask a favor of this "famous Rabbi".
