On Shepherding and Discipleship: Introduction

"Then I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding. (Jeremiah 3:15 NASB) And all the people gathered as one man at the square which was in front of the Water Gate, and they asked Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses which the LORD had given to Israel. (Nehemiah 8:1 NASB) The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men  who will be able to teach others also.

But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil. (Hebrews 5:13-14 NASB
