Three Identifications of a Disciple
In today’s Gospel passage, Jesus lists three identifications of a disciple
- one who is sent
- a prophet
- a righteous person.
The one who is sent can never be greater than the Sender.
A prophet delivers God’s message, not of one’s own.
And the message should be that of a life striving for righteousness, becoming more and more the image and reflection of the one who sends us.
