“Then Peter said
We have left everything.
We have followed you.
What then shall we have?’”
Τότε ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ Πέτρος εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ἰδοὺ ἡμεῖς ἀφήκαμεν πάντα καὶ ἠκολουθήσαμέν σοι· τί ἄρα ἔσται ἡμῖν;
This saying by the pragmatic leader of the disciples showed that Peter was concerned about himself and his fellow disciples. What was in for them? Something similar can be found in Mark, chapter 10:26, and Luke, chapter 18:28, but slightly different. Then Peter responded or complained to Jesus (Τότε ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ Πέτρος εἶπεν αὐτῷ). He said that he and the other disciples had left everything that he had (Ἰδοὺ ἡμεῖς ἀφήκαμεν πάντα), including their families. They were willing to follow Jesus (καὶ ἠκολουθήσαμέν σοι), but what was going to be their reward (τί ἄρα ἔσται ἡμῖν). Would they be left empty-handed?
