Disciple Bible Study
Studying the Bible is essential to becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ. Disciple Bible Study 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 and how to apply it in our daily lives.
Disciple Bible Studies are co-ed and multi-generational, open to all adults. There are four primary studies in the series. Most studies are 24 weeks long, with two 12-week sessions in each of the Old and New Testaments.
Disciple 1: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study
The first study in the program is Disciple Fast Track: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study, a 24-week overview of the entire Bible. Classes cover the entire Bible—from Genesis to Revelation—in a total of 24 weeks, broken down into two 12-week sessions, with daily Bible reading, notes and questions.. Weekly sessions last an hour to 75 minutes. Four video hosts provide approximately 5-minute video insights related to the week’s session to help recall important facts and offer insights. At the end of the 24-week study, participants have the opportunity to take a spiritual gifts assessment and determine meaningful ways they can serve and live out their discipleship commitment.
Mondays, beginning September 12 | 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. | Room B200
Tuesdays, beginning September 13 | 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. | Room B204
Disciple 4: Under the Tree of Life
Disciple 4 Under the Tree of Life is the final study in the four-phase DISCIPLE program. This is a 32-week study that concentrates on Old Testament Writings, the Gospel of John, the Epistles of John, James, Jude, and finally, Revelation. Emphasis on the Psalms as Israel’s hymnbook and prayer book leads naturally to an emphasis on worship in the study. Present through the entire study is the sense of living toward completion—toward the climax of the message and the promise, extravagantly pictured in Revelation. The image of the tree and the color gold emphasize the prod and promise in the Scriptures. The word under in the title is meant to convey invitation, welcome, sheltering, security, and rest—home at last.
Tuesdays, beginning September 6 | 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. | Room B200
Jesus in the Gospels
This study illuminates some aspect of the Jesus in the Gospels each week and connects Scripture to daily life and Jesus' call to discipleship. The overarching aim is to deepen discipleship through better understanding of the biblical texts and their message. The study helps group members understand that Jesus is rooted in Judaism and the Scriptures of Judaism and that Christianity and the New Testament are rooted in the Scriptures of Judaism—our Old Testament.
Mondays, beginning September 12 | 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. | Room B110
