The Jewish Roots of Discipleship

t the fifth Asia Pacific Consultation on Discipleship in May 2012, contributor, David Pileggi, delivered a lecture entitled “Yeshua, Leviticus and Holiness.”

In this lecture, Pileggi examines the Jewish origin of discipleship, which is founded on the principle of the imitation of God. Pileggi shows how discipleship is related to the repeated statement in Leviticus, “Be holy, for I am holy,” and discusses how this biblical theme informed the teachings of Jesus.
