Disciple 2 - INTO THE WORD INTO THE WORLD - Genesis, Exodus, Luke and Acts
This thirty-two week study selects specific portions of Scripture and delves deeper into them. Depth study of Scripture will be the work both of individual members and of the group in its weekly meeting. Equal attention is given to Old and New Testaments with concentration on four books: Genesis, Exodus, Luke, and Acts.
INTO THE WORD INTO THE WORLD is prepared for those who have completed DISCIPLE 1. This study proclaims the transforming power of Scripture while teaching Bible study skills that take participants deeper into the Scripture. The importance of keeping Bible study related to witness is reinforced while participants are encouraged to practice spiritual disciplines arising out of Scripture. The purpose is to change habits and transform lives. The study also emphasizes the rhythm of coming to God and going for God, of being in the Word and in the world individually and corporately. This study understands the growing Christian as under discipline in community and in ministry to the world. INTO THE WORD INTO THE WORLD approaches all experiences of life as opportunities for faithful witness and service.
Disciple 1 - BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY - From Genesis to Revelation
Disciple 1 is the foundation of the Disciple Bible Study program. It gives equal time to both the Old and New Testaments, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as the revelation of God. Disciple assumes that the Bible is the key to renewal in the church. It recognizes the human-divine nature of the Bible.
Disciple aims at transformation, not just information and calls on persons to submit themselves to examination by Scripture, to put themselves under the power of God's Word, and to be changed by God's Word. Disciple invites persons to bring their experiences and struggles to the Scripture.
During the course of thirty-four weeks, Disciple 1 groups will move through the biblical story from Creation to the New Jerusalem. The titles of the sessions along with theme words; theme verses; and major persons, events, and topics will set the sequence of the biblical story in the minds of the participants. The principal Scripture for each session follows the chronological movement of the biblical story.
