In the Jewish culture a disciple was a learner or a follower of a Rabbi. There was a phrase that was common at the time, which states, "May you be covered in the dust of your Rabbi." We get a picture of how discipleship is meant to look. You should follow so closely behind your Rabbi that the dust kicked up by his shoes should cover you. What an amazing thought! The Great Commission wasn't go and make converts. We are commissioned by Christ to go and raise a generation who will so closely follow Him that it will be clearly evident to anyone they come in contact with who their Rabbi is.
