And he said unto another, follow me
According to Matthew, one of his disciples, who had attended him some time, and whom he now called to the ministerial work; (See Gill on Matthew 8:20). The Ethiopic version reads, "another said to him, shall I not follow thee?" but without any foundation: they are certainly the words of Christ, directed to another person, at the same time he met with the former:
but he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father;
(See Gill on Matthew 8:21).
