      This is in response to the earlier post suggesting looking for
      mentors in literature. The Bible has several accounts of mentors and
      their proteges:

      Moses mentored Joshua

      Eli mentored Samuel

      Samuel tried to mentor King Saul, but Saul wouldn't listen to him, so

      Samuel mentored David

      Elijah mentored Elisha

      Jesus mentored his apostles, who became mentors themselves

      Philip mentored the Ethiopian eunuch

      Paul mentored Luke and Timothy, among others

      And God Himself directly mentored Adam, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Elijah,
      His Son Jesus, and more.

      In the realm of fiction, the SF show Babylon 5 also has several
      mentoring relationships:

      Dukat mentored Delenn before the Earth-Minbari war

      Ambassador Delenn mentored Lanier

      Ambassador Molari mentored Vir

      Ambassador Kosh mentored Captain Sheridan for a time

      Garibaldi mentored Zack

      Byron mentored Lyta Alexander and the others of his group

      The Shadows mentored Morden

      The Shadows and Vorlons both looked to Lorien as a kind of mentor

      The Rangers looked to Ranger 1 (Sinclair and Delenn) as mentor

      We even see Bester mentoring a young telepath in the fifth season

      I just thought this would help.
