    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:19

    Y llegndose un escriba, le dijo: Maestro, te seguir adondequiera que fueres.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 8:19

    Verse 19. A certain
    scribe] Though eiv grammateuv, ONE scribe, may be considered as a Hebraism, yet it is probable that the literal construction of it was intended, to show that few of this class came to the Lord Jesus for instruction or salvation.

    Master] Rather, teacher, didaskale from didaskw, I teach, which itself seems to be derived from deikw, I show, and means the person who shows or points out a particular way or science.

    I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.] A man who is not illuminated by the Spirit of God thinks himself capable of any thing: he alone who is divinely taught knows he can do nothing but through Christ strengthening him. Every teacher among the Jews had disciples, and some especially that followed or accompanied them wherever they went, that they might have some person at hand with whom they might converse concerning the Divine law.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 19. And a certain Scribe came , etc.] As they went in the way, ( Luke 9:57) to go to the sea side, in order to take shipping, and pass to the other shore; and said unto him, Master, or Rabbi, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest . One would have thought, that this man desired in good earnest to be a disciple of Christ, were it not for Christs answer to him, who knew his heart: from whence it appears, that he, seeing the miracles which Christ wrought, and observing the fame of him among the people, began to think that he would be generally received as the Messiah; and by joining himself to him, promised himself much ease, honour, and wealth. These seem to be the motives, which prevailed upon him to take so sudden and hasty a step; for he did not wait to be called to follow Christ, as the other disciples were, but offers himself to be one; that is, to be one of his intimates, one of his apostles; and besides, he rashly promises to do that, which he knew nothing of, and which in some cases is impossible to be done.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-22 - One of the
    scribes was too hasty in promising; he proffers himself to be a close follower of Christ. He seems to be very resolute. Man resolutions for religion are produced by sudden conviction, and take up without due consideration; these come to nothing. When this scrib offered to follow Christ, one would think he should have bee encouraged; one scribe might do more credit and service than twelv fishermen; but Christ saw his heart, and answered to its thoughts, an therein teaches all how to come to Christ. His resolve seems to have been from a worldly, covetous principle; but Christ had not a place to lay his head on, and if he follows him, he must not expect to far better than he fared. We have reason to think this scribe went away Another was too slow. Delay in doing is as bad on the one hand, a hastiness in resolving is on the other. He asked leave to attend his father to his grave, and then he would be at Christ's service. Thi seemed reasonable, yet it was not right. He had not true zeal for the work. Burying the dead, especially a dead father, is a good work, but it is not thy work at this time. If Christ requires our service affection even for the nearest and dearest relatives, and for thing otherwise our duty, must give way. An unwilling mind never wants a excuse. Jesus said to him, Follow me; and, no doubt, power went with this word to him as to others; he did follow Christ, and cleaved to him. The scribe said, I will follow thee; to this man Christ said Follow me; comparing them together, it shows that we are brought to Christ by the force of his call to us, Ro 9:16.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    8:19 {A
    scribe} (heis grammateus). One (heis)="a," indefinite article. Already a disciple as shown by "another of the disciples" (heteros t"n maqetwn) in #8:21. He calls Jesus "Teacher" (didaskale), but he seems to be a "bumptious" brother full of self-confidence and self-complacency. "Even one of that most unimpressionable class, in spirit and tendency utterly opposed to the ways of Jesus" (Bruce). Yet Jesus deals gently with him.
