Disciple Bible Studies
Disciple Bible Studies
Disciple Bible Study has been highly regarded for over 30 Years and remained the number one choice for some of the most vibrant congregations in the world––transforming the lives of more than two million participants! Disciple is a program of disciplined Bible study aimed at developing strong Christian leaders. The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. Disciple draws upon the work of scholars, the personal Bible reading and study of the participant, and dynamic group discussion to aid understanding of the Bible.
The first study in the program is Disciple I: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study, a thirty-four week overview of the entire Bible.
Disciple II: Into the Word Into the World is the second study in the four-phase Disciple program and is prepared for those who are graduates of Disciple I: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study. This study proclaims the transforming power of Scripture while teaching Bible study skills that take participants deeper into the Scripture.
Disciple III: Remember Who You Are is part of the four-phase Disciple program and is prepared for those who have completed Disciple I: Becoming Disciples Through Bible. The driving idea in this study is the connection between memory and identity as the people of God.
Disciple IV: Under the Tree of Life, the final study in the four-phase Disciple program, is prepared for those who have completed Disciple I: Becoming Disciples Through Bible. The study concentrates on the Writings (Old Testament books not in the Torah or the Prophets), the Gospel of John, and Revelation.
Short-Term Disciple Bible Studies are life-changing courses are ideal for busy people who are unable to commit to longer studies. They focus on smaller Bible sections, or single books of the Bible, and appeal to more participants with more frequent offerings! These studies embody the same trusted scholarship as the Disciple foundational studies and include the same core activities: independent reading, weekly small groups, and video presentations by scholars.
The Christian Believer program focuses on classical teachings of the Christian faith—presenting, explaining, and interpreting them in a way that participants can understand, through the use of words, symbols, and hymns. Over a 30-week period, participants will examine the writings of ancient and modern Christian commentators and view video presentations by leading Bible scholars.
Jesus in the Gospels studies the name, the place, and the people, and encounter the Jesus who is both hard to ignore and hard to control--a commanding, morally compelling figure as portrayed in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. This is a 30-week study.
