It was inappropriate. Jesus had described graphically how he would be cruelly treated and killed, and two of the disciples decide this would be a good time to request positions of authority in the coming Kingdom of God! Jesus here reminds them that to follow him means a life of suffering service. They must "enslave" themselves in the service of God and his people. The Saviour leads by example in giving his very life as a payment, or ransom, for his people. He suffers in their place, and they go free.
