2. The Way to Follow the King
8:18-22

18 Now when Jesus saw a crowd around Him, He gave orders to 1depart to the other side.

19 aAnd a scribe came near and said to Him, Teacher, I will 1follow You wherever You 2go.

20 And Jesus said to him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of heaven have roosts, but the 1aSon of Man has 2nowhere to lay His head.

21 And another of the disciples said to Him, Lord, apermit me first to 1go and bury my father.

22 But Jesus said to him, aFollow Me, and let the 1bdead bury their own 1cdead.
