'Disciple' in the Bible
"A disciple is not greater than his teacher, nor a slave greater than his master.
It is enough for the disciple to become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. If they have called the head of the house 'Beelzebul,' how much more will they defame the members of his household!
And whoever gives only a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple, I tell you the truth, he will never lose his reward."
Now when it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who was also a disciple of Jesus.
A disciple is not greater than his teacher, but everyone when fully trained will be like his teacher.
John answered, "Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him because he is not a disciple along with us."
"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother, and wife and children, and brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.
Whoever does not carry his own cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
In the same way therefore not one of you can be my disciple if he does not renounce all his own possessions.
They heaped insults on him, saying, "You are his disciple! We are disciples of Moses!
So Simon Peter gestured to this disciple to ask Jesus who it was he was referring to.
Then the disciple whom Jesus loved leaned back against Jesus' chest and asked him, "Lord, who is it?"
Simon Peter and another disciple followed them as they brought Jesus to Annas. (Now the other disciple was acquainted with the high priest, and he went with Jesus into the high priest's courtyard.)
But Simon Peter was left standing outside by the door. So the other disciple who was acquainted with the high priest came out and spoke to the slave girl who watched the door, and brought Peter inside.
So when Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, "Woman, look, here is your son!"
He then said to his disciple, "Look, here is your mother!" From that very time the disciple took her into his own home.
After this, Joseph of Arimathea, a disciple of Jesus (but secretly, because he feared the Jewish leaders), asked Pilate if he could remove the body of Jesus. Pilate gave him permission, so he went and took the body away.
So she went running to Simon Peter and the other disciple whom Jesus loved and told them, "They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don't know where they have put him!"
Then Peter and the other disciple set out to go to the tomb.
The two were running together, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and reached the tomb first.
Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, came in, and he saw and believed.
Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" So Simon Peter, when he heard that it was the Lord, tucked in his outer garment (for he had nothing on underneath it), and plunged into the sea.
Peter turned around and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them. (This was the disciple who had leaned back against Jesus' chest at the meal and asked, "Lord, who is the one who is going to betray you?")
So the saying circulated among the brothers and sisters that this disciple was not going to die. But Jesus did not say to him that he was not going to die, but rather, "If I want him to live until I come back, what concern is that of yours?"
This is the disciple who testifies about these things and has written these things, and we know that his testimony is true.
Now there was a disciple in Damascus named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, "Ananias," and he replied, "Here I am, Lord."
When he arrived in Jerusalem, he attempted to associate with the disciples, and they were all afraid of him, because they did not believe that he was a disciple.
Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which in translation means Dorcas). She was continually doing good deeds and acts of charity.
He also came to Derbe and to Lystra. A disciple named Timothy was there, the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer, but whose father was a Greek.
