Matthew 8:18-22 Let the Dead Bury Their Own Dead - Steve Gregg




 Why did Jesus say "let the dead bury their own dead" ?

Matthew 8:18-22

 

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Cost of Discipleship

 

18 And when Jesus saw great multitudes about Him, He gave a command to depart to the other side.   19 Then a certain scribe came and said to Him, “Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.”

20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head."

21 Then another of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.”

22 But Jesus said to him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”
