What must I do?

I never noticed this before, but two different people asked Jesus the same question at different times during his ministry:

And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" (Luke 10:25)
Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" (Luke 18:18)

"You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me." (John 5:39)
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
