What is a Disciple of Jesus?

NOTE: Only Jesus [Yeshua] and God’s [YHWH] words are absolute truth. On this website, and everywhere, the words that are not theirs could be wrong.

   Jesus said to His disciples:

Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”

  But what is a Disciple of Jesus?

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

ONLY JESUS is our teacher concerning the things of YHWH/God:

Matthew 23:8-10 NKJV  “But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. “Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. “And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the 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 =”YHWH is salvation” 1.) Jesus, the Son of God, the Son of Man

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

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