And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
 

10:18 none good but one. The Lord Jesus was not denying His own deity and sinlessness here. The rich young man needed a better understanding both of true “goodness” and of the mission of Jesus. If he would call Jesus “good,” He should realize that must imply that Jesus was the divine Son of God, but the young man was thinking of Him only as a good teacher.
