Abstract

This paper is divided in two short sections in order to better understand the importance of discipleship and its applicability in postmodern contexts. I will (1) briefly look at two of the main historical roots of the master-disciple relationship (the Greek and the Jewish) in an attempt to elucidate one of the basic elements involved in the discipleship process, and (2) I will then present, in general terms, some of the challenges and opportunities that the postmodern attitude brings to discipleship.
