Hear the call to return to God and a community “set apart.”
Hosts share insights related to the week's session and help the group think about what they've learned and how it applies to their lives. The DVD includes 24 weekly video clips of 3-5 minutes each.
This Disciple Fast Track is an adaptation of the original, bestselling Disciple Bible Study: Remember Who You Are. The study is ideal for busy people who want to fit an in-depth Bible study into their schedule. The study retains the familiar Disciple format with its theme word, theme verse, statement of the human condition, daily and weekly assignments, and prayer.
This study examines the connection between memory and identity as the people of God. Participants will find common themes, including calls to remember, calls to repent, calls for renewal, and calls for community.
In this study, there are 12 sessions on the Old Testament major and minor Prophets (except Daniel) and on the thirteen New Testament letters traditionally attributed to Paul. The prophets and Paul are continually calling hearers and readers back to their God and to a sense of who they are as a people "set apart." Daily reading assignments are designed to establish the historical context in which the prophets and Paul worked. Readers will encounter "The Word of the Lord," with comments on Scripture and amplification of meaning, as well as "Marks of Obedient Community," which identifies beliefs, attitudes, and actions of the obeying community. "Marks" is the faith response to "Our Human Condition."
Classes meet for a total of 24 weeks, studying the Prophets and Paul's letters for 12 sessions each. Preparation is manageable, with 3–5 chapters of the Bible to read each day.
Minimal additional preparation is needed for the leader—just prepare handouts and follow the Leader Guide. Weekly sessions last 75 minutes. Flexible for use with small groups of 8–14, or for large groups of 15–100.
