Participants in DISCIPLE: Remember Who You Are, a 32-week study, will read the major and minor Old Testament prophets, with the exception of Daniel, and will read the thirteen Letters traditionally attributed to Paul. To establish the historical context in which the prophets spoke for God, daily reading assignments draw also on the books of Deuteronomy through Chronicles. The 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.
The Planning Kit contains everything a leader needs:
- Study Manual - Guides group members in their study and preparation for the weekly group session. The study manual also includes suggestions for individual research and study-related activities. Space is provided for taking notes while reading Scripture, for recording thoughts and questions arising out of daily study, and for notes during the weekly group session.
- Teacher Helps - Provides an outline for an orientation session and process suggestions for each of the weekly group sessions. Weekly group sessions follow a set pattern with designated amounts of time for each step. Suggestions for group activity are specific and clearly related to the Scripture being studied. A one-page teaching plan is provided.
- DVD - Thirty– two video segments providing biblical and historical background for the prophets and the letters of Paul. Each segment is approximately ten minutes. Shown at the beginning of the weekly meeting, the video focuses the group and stimulates discussion.
- Context Portfolio - This set of maps and charts is prepared specifically for this study of the Prophets and Paul’s letters. It provides the setting or surrounding circumstances in which an event occurs. Items in the portfolio situate the prophets and Paul’s writings historically and geographically.
