Matt 8:18–22

8:18–22 These two events show the radical commitment Jesus demands of disciples. Those who identify with Jesus will be “sojourners and exiles” in the world (1 Pet. 2:11). Honoring one’s parents by providing a proper burial was a strict obligation in Jewish society, but Jesus demands a greater allegiance to Himself.
