“But Jesus told him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.””

Matthew 8:22 HCSB

I have read this verse countless times and have either not been able to get my head around it, or not paid it much attention. Today it stood out to me what Jesus was saying, though. When He said “let the dead bury their own dead,” I believe He is referring to those who were NOT following Him. They were the dead, because He was the Life!
