Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 9:61

_ _ Luke 9:61, Luke 9:62. The irresolute disciple.

_ _ I will follow ... but — The second disciple had a “but” too — a difficulty in the way just then. Yet the different treatment of the two cases shows how different was the spirit of the two, and to that our Lord addressed Himself. The case of Elisha (1 Kings 19:19-21), though apparently similar to this, will be found quite different from the “looking back” of this case, the best illustration of which is that of those Hindu converts of our day who, when once persuaded to leave their spiritual fathers in order to “bid them farewell which are at home at their house,” very rarely return to them. (Also see on Matthew 8:21.)

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 9:57-62.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 9:61

Suffer me first to bid them farewell that are in my house — As Elisha did after Elijah had called him from the plough, 1 Kings 19:19; to which our Lord's answer seems to allude.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 9:61

(15) And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

(15) Those who follow Christ must at once renounce all worldly cares.
