Why, in Luke's account does Jesus specifically tell the disciple to go after he requests to go and bury his father?
In Matthew's account, Jesus responds to the request of the man to bury his father by instructing the disciple to follow him:
21 Another of the disciples said to him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 22 And Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their own dead.”
However, in the Luke account things are a little different:
Luke 9:59-60 59 To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 60 And Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”
Here, the instruction to follow Jesus occurs before the man requests to go and bury his father. After this request, Jesus says the famous line about burying the dead and then tells the man he previously told to follow him, instead to go, or depart, in response to hearing his request to bury his father.
Does the Luke account reveal that Jesus actually permitted the disciple to depart and bury his father on the condition that he proclaims the gospel of the kingdom of God?
Otherwise, why, in context, would Jesus tell the man he just instructed to follow him to depart?
