Word “Disciple” is used five times i.e. in 3:5212, 5:111.4, 5:112.3, 61:14.12 and 61:14.18 (courtesy http://corpus.quran.com/)
and it always refers to the disciples of Prophet Jesus. Contemporary followers of the Prophet Mohammad are always referred as
“companions” not “disciples” or “students”. Please explain.
