DISCIPLE1 is a 34 week introduction to the Bible.
This excellent course is based on the Study Manual, and is made up of three components:
1. Daily readings:
~ several chapters of the Bible are set for five days each week; and
~ very good study notes are worked through on the 6th day (the 7th day is a rest day... very Biblical).
2. A weekly meeting:
~ each weekly meeting will include ample opportunity to discuss the readings for that week;
~ a short video teaching is given by top Biblical scholars from the UK;
~ the group will join in a practical Bible study;
~ time is given for reflection on the mark of discipleship for that week; and
~ the group will spend time in prayer together.
3. A ministry challenge:
~ each disciple is challenged to take part in a ministry reaching out to others, and is held accountable by the group.
DISCIPLE1 in 2011
Our group consists of 12 disciples, and is being facilitated by Sue Dacre and Simphiwe Matebe.
Rev Dr Neil T Oosthuizen: I have the best job in the world... I'm paid to read the Bible! And I've done so seriously for over 35 years now. During thta time I have received my Doctorate in Biblical Studies, and completed every Bible Study course I could find. None of the others comes close to DISCIPLE1. You not only study the whole Bible in a way that challenges your faith walk and lifestyle, but do so as a part of an accountability group. Best of all, though - you read the Bible. Not being melodramatic - if you want to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ then do DISCIPLE1. It will change your life.
