22耶稣对他说:“跟从我吧!让死人去埋葬他们的死人。”
22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.
22 Verse 22. Let the dead bury their dead.] It was usual for the

Jews to consider a man as dead who had departed from the precepts

of the law; and, on this ground, every transgressor was reputed a

dead man. Our Lord's saying, being in common use, had nothing

difficult in it to a Jew. Natural death is the separation of the

body and soul; spiritual death, the separation of God and the

soul: men who live in sin are dead to God. Leave the spiritually

dead to bury their natural dead. All the common offices of life

may be performed by any person; to preach the glad tidings of the

kingdom of God is granted but to a few, and to these only by an

especial call; these should immediately abandon worldly concerns

and employments, and give themselves wholly up to the work of the

ministry.
