The earliest followers of Jesus didn’t call themselves Christians. They didn’t think of themselves as members of a religion. They considered themselves disciples – students and apprentices of Rabbi Jesus. So if this is who we’re supposed to be, how do we begin to define 'disciple’?
Is being a disciple about knowing certain things? Doing certain things? Saying, believing, or rejecting certain things? If so, what? Is there a manual for this? How long does it take? And what’s the point of it all? Or simply, what does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus?
