The young man curiously ask Jesus (vs. 16), "...master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" Jesus answered and said unto him, "...if thou will enter into life, keep the commandments (which is listed in vs. 18). The young man thought that he had done everything that Jesus was asking him do. Confused he said, "I did all these things from my youth: what lack I yet?" (vs.20).
