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.
