Mark 2:14 Follow me.

KJV Verse: 

Mark 2:14 ...Follow me...

Greek Verse: 

Interesting and Hidden Aspects: 

The word "follow" has the additional sense also of following a thought in a discourse as well as physically following someone. The object this word takes isn't a direct objects, but an indirect one.  Jesus doesn't ask those he has cured to follow him. He has cured three people and each of them were told, in a variety of ways, to get on with their lives. Instead he asks the tax collector, Levi Matthew, who was working at the time and we assume successfully.

me: The "me" is in the form of an indirect object, which is what Jesus always uses with the Greek word for follow.
