Disciple 1 provides a foundational overview of the Bible. Beginning with Genesis and continuing through Revelation, group members will read approximately 80% of the Bible. Disciple 1 is great for those at any place in their faith journey.
After Disciple 1 you can choose any of these other great studies in any order you like:
Fast Track Disciple 2 is a shortened version of the original Disciple 2 study. Classes meet for a total of 24 weeks and study Genesis-Exodus and Luke-Acts for 12 sessions each. Daily preparation is to read 3-5 chapters of the Bible each day. (Disciple 1 suggested pre-requisite)
Fast Track Disciple 3 is a shortened version of the original Disciple 3 study. Classes meet for a total of 24 weeks and examine the major and minor Old Testament prophets and the 13 Letters traditionally attributed to Paul. Several themes weave their way through the study-the call to remember; the call to repentance; the need for renewed vision and the place of community. (Disciple 1 suggested pre-requisite)
Disciple 4 concentrates on the Old Testament writings not in the Torah or the Prophets, such as Psalms and Proverbs, and the Gospel of John and Revelation. (24 week study, Disciple 1 suggested prerequisite)
Jesus in the Gospels digs deeply into the mission and message of Jesus through a detailed and comparative study of the Gospels. Study the name, the place and the people and a commanding, morally compelling figure as portrayed in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. (30 week study, Disciple 1 suggested prerequisite)
Christian Believer is a study of the classical doctrines of the Christian faith which includes God's providence, atonement, judgment and eternal life. This class blends together the reading of Scripture with reading classic Christian writings. (30 week study, Disciple 1 suggested pre-requisite)
