I heard in UBF that Jesus also employed "one-to-one Bible study". And that Jesus appointed the Gerasene demoniac as the "director of the Decapolis" after his exorcism. What a great UBF leader Jesus was!

But Jesus' example of washing his disciples' feet and his teaching that the greatest among the disciples is the one who is the slave of all? These never did translate well in the UBF world of "spiritual order."
