How Jesus made Disciples
The model by which Jesus made disciples can be summed up in the process of selecting and training of ordinary men, whose life and destiny are compelled for the enrichment of the Gospel.  Discipleship is what a disciple does. If she's not following Christ, then Christ gets left out of the process.  Jesus made disciples with a heart of total surrendering and following of his teaching, so that when his mission on earth is complete He can entrust the disciples to his work and mission. Not only that Jesus taught his disciples to follow him and his teaching, but he also made them aware of the need to reflects on the reality of living out their lives for him. They were to commit, and defend their reasons to believe in his teaching while at the same time, drawing others to the God, and mentor who often demonstrate his love for them.  Discipleship is more than following, and listening to the teaching of Christ, but instead, it involves drawing others to the truth of the Gospel. The success of discipleship does not depend on soldiering forward in a mechanical strategy of reproduction and multiplication. Rather discipleship occurs when a transformed person radiates Christ to those around them.
They had passion and spiritual hunger. They were common enough to work outside the religious system. They had a lot to give up, but one thing they didn't have to give up was a religious career; perhaps nothing paralyzes a leader's transformation more than the prospect of losing his religious career.  The process Jesus used to make disciples was rabbinical system built on progressive levels of commitment, trust, obedience, and learning. At each step He demanded greater commitment, which gave His followers greater impact. The progressed over a four-year period culminating with Great commission (Mt.28:19) and the launching of the first church history.

How Jesus Made Disciples.

Discipleship is more than following, and listening to the teaching of Christ, but instead, it involves drawing others to the truth of the Gospel. The success of discipleship does not depend on soldiering forward in a mechanical strategy of reproduction and multiplication. Rather discipleship occurs when a transformed person radiates Christ to those around them. Jesus chose men who had the basic raw materials to help him rescue the world, starting in Jerusalem. They had passion and spiritual hunger. They were common enough to work outside the religious system. They had a lot to give up, but one thing they didn't have to give up was a religious career; perhaps nothing paralyzes a leader's transformation more than the prospect of losing his religious career.
