NET © Notes

tn The words “the money” are not in the Greek text, but are implied. Direct objects were often omitted in Greek when clear from the context.

sn The call for sacrifice comes with a promise of eternal reward: You will have treasure in heaven. Jesus’ call is a test to see how responsive the man is to God’s direction through him. Will he walk the path God’s agent calls him to walk? For a rich person who got it right, see Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10.
