he people who met
Jesus on the road in
today’s gospel, and who all
had reasons to delay following him, are mirror images of Elisha when he
was called to come and
follow the prophet Elijah.

and say goodbye to
his parents Elisha

of the calling. There

pair of oxen he was
using to plough the
field with, killed them
and cooked them by
burning the plough.
The meat would

but not very tender!

Jesus was calling his
apostles, we are told that
they left their nets etc. “at
