What is a disciple?
Today, we will see in our text, the story of Jesus calling his first four disciples. Last week we read of him coming into the area of Galilee and he began to announce that the Kingdom of God is near. The Old Covenant is over, and now a New Covenant was set to begin. Jesus challenged the people that heard him to repent and to believe in the Good News.
So…we have to ask the basic question: “What is a Disciple?”
Our English word for disciple means “follower or student of a teacher, leader, or philosopher”.
The Greek word that Mark used to describe the followers of Jesus is “mathetes”. It’s translated to English as “disciple”.
