Definition of the word Disciples; An active follower or adherent of a teacher or concept.
Luke chapter 11 - 1 : And it came to pass, that he was praying in a certain place when he ceased, of one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach, us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
John chapter 8 -31 : Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed.
John chapter 9 - 28 : Then they reviled him, and said, thou art his disciple; but we are Moses disciples.
Acts chapter 20 - 7 : And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto him, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
We should all be disciples and followers and users of the word of God. If we all take what Jesus metaphorically, like some of our religious leaders and the higher ups does; Then God's words are reduce to what these leaders wants us to think. I think the majority of his words should be used literally.
We as disciples are suppose to use the word of God and not use man's interpretation as the meaning there of, because man can lead us stray. If we study the bible and ask God for his understanding , we want be brain washed into thinking mans way.
Real disciples of God will seek and search out a matter and not just except man's conclusion. There are some of us that like's man 's conclusion it tickles our ears; and it's what we want to hear, because the truth hurt sometimes; especially when we have to except it as being real.
