Jesus had a lot of people, a lot of different kinds of people, around Him at times.
Seekers are curious, they visit, they check things out.
Fans are consumers, they wear the t-shirt, buy a ticket, but they can be very fickle.
Followers are participants, loyal, committed.
Disciples are bought in! They invest in the future! They make it happen!
Jesus had many more disciples than just the 12 names you know: Luke 10:1
