Luke 14:25

And he turned (kai strapei). Second aorist passive participle of strepw, common verb. It is a dramatic act on the part of Jesus, a deliberate effort to check the wild and unthinking enthusiasm of the crowds who followed just to be following. Note "many multitudes" (ocloi polloi) and the imperfect tense suneporeuonto, were going along with him.
