What does Luke 22:26 mean?
ESV: But not so with you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves.
NIV: But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.
NASB: But it is not this way for you; rather, the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.
CSB: It is not to be like that among you. On the contrary, whoever is greatest among you should become like the youngest, and whoever leads, like the one serving.
NLT: But among you it will be different. Those who are the greatest among you should take the lowest rank, and the leader should be like a servant.
KJV: But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

Book Summary:
Luke was a traveling companion of Paul (Acts 16:10) and a physician (Colossians 4:14). Unlike Matthew, Mark, and John, Luke writes his gospel as an historian, rather than as a first-hand eyewitness. His extensive writings also include the book of Acts (Acts 1:1–3). These are deliberately organized, carefully researched accounts of those events. The gospel of Luke focuses on the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ. Luke's Gentile perspective presents Christ as a Savior for all people, offering both forgiveness and direction to those who follow Him.
