Hate: Luke 14.26 VOTD

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother, and wife and children, and brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.”

Luke 14.26

In his gospel Luke focuses on discipleship and its cost. The kingdom is open to all, Lk 14.15-24, at a price, for God is eager to welcome the lost, Lk 15.1-32.

Jesus uses the word “hate.” Why does he do that?
