'Disciple' in the Bible
"A disciple is not above his teacher, and a slave is not above his master.
It is enough for a disciple to be like his teacher and a slave to be like his master. If they have called the head of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they do the same to those of his household!"
I tell all of you with certainty, whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple will never lose his reward."
Later that evening, a rich man arrived from Arimathea. His name was Joseph, and he had become a disciple of Jesus.
Therefore, as you go, disciple people in all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
A disciple is not better than his teacher. But everyone who is fully-trained will be like his teacher.
"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father, mother, wife, children, brothers, and sisters, as well as his own life, he can't be my disciple.
Whoever doesn't carry his cross and follow me can't be my disciple.
In the same way, none of you can be my disciple unless he gives up all his possessions."
At this, they turned on him in fury and said, "You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses!
Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. Since the other disciple was known to the high priest, he accompanied Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest.
Peter, however, stood outside the gate. So this other disciple who was known to the high priest went out and spoke to the gatekeeper and brought Peter inside.
When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he kept loving standing there, he told his mother, "Dear lady, here is your son."
Then he told the disciple, "Here is your mother." And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.
Later on, Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus (though a secret one because he was afraid of the Jewish leaders), asked Pilate to let him remove the body of Jesus. Pilate gave him permission, and he came and removed his body.
So she ran off and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, whom Jesus kept loving. She told them, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don't know where they have put him!"
So Peter and the other disciple took off for the tomb.
The two of them were running together, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and came to the tomb first.
Then the other disciple, who arrived at the tomb first, went inside, looked, and believed.
That disciple whom Jesus kept loving told Peter, "It's the Lord!" When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his clothes back on, because he was practically naked, and jumped into the sea.
Peter turned around and noticed the disciple whom Jesus kept loving following them. He was the one who had put his head on Jesus' chest at the supper and had asked, "Lord, who is the one who is going to betray you?"
So the rumor spread among the brothers that this disciple wasn't going to die. Yet Jesus didn't say to Peter that he wasn't going to die, but, "If it's my will for him to remain until I come back, how does that concern you?"
This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and has written them down. We know that his testimony is true.
Now in Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called out to him in a vision, "Ananias!" He answered, "Here I am, Lord."
