Disciple Bible Studies

 

Disciple is an in-depth Bible study that is based on the following underlying principles:

  • presents the Bible as the primary text;
  • calls for daily preparation on the part of students;
  • the study leader acts as a facilitator rather than as a lecturer;
  • includes a weekly discussion in a small-group setting that builds community;
  • includes a video component for making available the insights of biblical scholars to see the Scriptures in context; and has as one of its goals the enhancement of Christian discipleship

At Bethlehem Disciple courses are offered over a two year period, each session having eight lessons.  Disciple I is a 34 week course which gives an overview of both the Old and New Testaments.  Continuing studies of 32 weeks in length (Disciple II-IV) offer a more in-depth study of selected books of the Bible

The Disciple   I sessions are held at alternate times/days during the week, from September to November, and January to March/April.  It is required that participants complete Disciple I before going on to the subsequent courses.
