What is a Disciple of Jesus?

NOTE: only God’s words or Jesus’ words VERBATIM are truth. Anything that is not, is prone to error. That includes this site]

A Disciple of Jesus is someone who learns from Jesus and does what Jesus says to do.

Matthew 23:8-10 KJV –  But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

TECHNICALLY: We must define the words in the language used by scripture:

The Greek words “Disciple”,”Jesus” and “Christ”.


Noun Form μαθητής (mathētēs) 1.) a learner, pupil, disciple

Verb Form μαθητεύω (mathēteuō) 1.) to be a disciple of one 1.a.) to follow his precepts and instructions 2.) to make a disciple 2.a.) to teach, instruct

Jesus the Christ:

 ̓Ιησου̑ς (iēsous) Jesus =” Jehovah is salvation” 1.) Jesus, the Son of God, the Son of Man

Χριστός (Khristos) Christ =” anointed” 1.) Christ was the Messiah, the Son of God 2.) anointed

A Disciple of Jesus learns from the real Jesus in the 3 Synoptic Gospels [Matthew, Mark, Luke], who is our Rabbi.  We also learn from our Father Yahweh directly and through His prophets.
