10 QUOTES WITH «DISCIPLE»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word disciple.
1
Mark Barrowcliffe
Let me start with a confession: I don't enjoy cooking. The reason I usually do it at home is not because I'm a New Man or Jamie Oliver disciple, but because my wife's cooking is so bad. In fact, to me, cooking is less a pleasurable pastime than a defense against poisoning.
2
Michael Connelly
I'm a disciple of Raymond Chandler, who said in his essays that there's a quality of redemption in anything that can be called art.
3
Stephen Hawking
Science is not only a disciple of reason but, also, one of romance and passion.
4
Ignatius of Antioch
I have many deep thoughts in God, but I take my own measure, lest I perish by boasting... For I myself, though I am in chains and can comprehend heavenly things, the ranks of the angels and the hierarchy of principalities, things visible and invisible, for all this I am not yet a disciple.
5
Joseph Lancaster
When obedience to the Divine precepts keeps pace with knowledge, in the mind of any man, that man is a Christian; and when the fruits of Christianity are produced, that man is a disciple of our blessed Lord, let his profession of religion be what it may.
6
Dwight L. Moody
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.

Elaine Pagels
The Gospel of Judas really has been a surprise in many ways. For one thing, there's no other text that suggests that Judas Iscariot was an intimate, trusted disciple, one to whom Jesus revealed the secrets of the kingdom, and that conversely, the other disciples were misunderstanding what he meant by the gospel.

Elaine Pagels
The Secret Revelation of John opens, again, in crisis. The disciple John, grieving Jesus' death, is walking toward the temple when he meets a Pharisee who mocks him for having been deceived by a false messiah. These taunts echoed John's own fear and doubt.

Antonio Porchia
I have been my own disciple and my own master. And I have been a good disciple but a bad master.
10
