Disciple Making Like Jesus

I have never heard a talk about Discipleship that the speaker did not claim to be simply offering the advice of Jesus. Yet, I rarely ever see a person doing what Jesus did or said.

Think of the life of Jesus and reflect on how He made Disciples. (A Disciple is a learner)

List the different ways Jesus dealt with learners.

Preaching to a larger group
Speaking to a small group
Modeling certain behavior
Commanding learners DO something
Using pithy proverbs
Using stories
Assigning homework
Assigning online classes
Using Social Media like Twitter and Face Book
Assigning readings
Assigned memorizing Old Testament and New Testament scripture
Sword Drills
Small Group Discussions
Paradoxical Interventions
