katapi HOME Luke 14:25-33 - The Cost of Discipleship  Lk.14.25-33 (Peraea)- Mt.10.37-38 | KNSB Contents | notes

14 25 Now great multitudes accompanied him; and he turned and said to them, 14 26 "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. 14 27 Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 14 28 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? 14 29 Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, 14 30 saying, 'This man began to build, and was not able to finish.' 14 31 Or what king, going to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and take counsel whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? 14 32 And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends an embassy and asks terms of peace. 14 33 So therefore, whoever of you does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.
