What’s The Story Behind The Name App Disciple?

“It is very easy to be a student because the student is searching knowledge. He gathers knowledge, he becomes more and more knowledgeable. Finally, in his own turn he will become a teacher, but all that he knows is borrowed, nothing is really his own.
