About the Journal

Mathetheuo means 'student' or 'student'. It is found in the OT in 1 Chr. 25: 8; Isa 8:16; 50: 4; 54:13. the teacher-student relationship was a common feature of the ancient world; there, the Greek philosophers and the Jewish rabbis gathered several disciples or students. In NT times such customs still existed, and the word generally referred to people who received teachings from others, for example, the teachings of John the Baptist (Matt. 9:14; John 1:35), teachings of the Pharisees (Mk 2:18; Luke 5:33), and the teachings of Moses (John 9:28). The most common use of the word is to denote Jesus' followers in a general sense (as in Matt. 10:42; Luke 6:17; John 6:66), or specifically to the 12 disciples (Matt. 10: 1; 11: 1), who left everything to follow Jesus.
