28 Then Peter said, "Look, we have left our homes and followed you."

Luke 18:28 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 18:28

Then Peter said
"To him", as the Syriac and Arabic versions add; that is, to the Lord Jesus, as the Ethiopic version expresses it; who was always the most forward to speak on any occasion: he observing what was required of the young man, and how unwilling he was to comply with it, and the difficulty in every rich man's way of entrance into the kingdom of God, spoke as follows;

lo, we have left all:
the Arabic version reads, "all ours"; all we had, our friends, trades, and worldly substance;

and followed thee:
in ( Matthew 19:27 ) it is added, "what shall we have therefore"; referring to the promise of Christ, to the young man, that should he sell all he had, and give it to the poor, he should have treasure in heaven; (See Gill on Matthew 19:27).

Luke 18:28 In-Context

26 Those who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?"
27 He replied, "What is impossible for mortals is possible for God."
28 Then Peter said, "Look, we have left our homes and followed you."
29 And he said to them, "Truly I tell you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God,
30 who will not get back very much more in this age, and in the age to come eternal life."
