Once again we are on the road with Jesus as He makes His way toward Jerusalem. There is quite a good-sized crowd travelling with Him along the way and at some point in their progress Jesus speaks to them about the cost of being His disciple. His remarks are set up in 14:26-27:
If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
