The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.
Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
Remember what I told you: 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.
