The 12 disciples who followed Jesus offer us wonderful lessons on what it means to be modern-day disciples of Jesus, but we also gain great insight into the cost of discipleship by looking at Jesus' mother, Mary, and Mary Magdalene. In this Bible study, we follow the 12 disciples and the two Marys through the Gospels so that we can make their way of discipleship our own way of discipleship. A Guided Discovery of the Bible The Bible invites us to explore God's word and reflect on how we might respond to it. To do this, we need guidance and the right tools for discovery.
