DISCIPLE Bible Study can be a life changing experience for Christians that desire to get deep into the Bible. These study classes include reading through scripture, DVD lecture and enlightening class discussion. This year, Hillside will offer three Disciple opportunities.
DISCIPLE I - Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study
-DISCIPLE I moves through the Biblical story from Creation to New Jerusalem (Genesis through Revelation). The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. DISCIPLE 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. It aims for transformation, not just information.
-Completion of DISCIPLE I is the prerequisite to all other DISCIPLE Bible studies.
Study manuals will be provided at the beginning of the course; cost $40 at registration.
DISCIPLE II - Into the Word Into the World
-DISCIPLE II moves through Genesis, Exodus, Luke and Acts. This study proclaims the transforming power of Scripture while teaching Bible study skills that take participants deeper into the Scripture. The importance of keeping Bible study related to witness is reinforced while participants are encouraged to practice spiritual disciplines arising out of Scripture for the purpose of changing habits and transforming lives. The study also emphasizes the rhythm of coming to God and going for God, of being in the Word and in the world individually and corporately. This study understands the growing Christian as under discipline in community and in ministry to the world. INTO THE WORD INTO THE WORLD approaches all experiences of life as opportunities for faithful witness and service. The only prerequisite for this class is DISCIPLE I. Study manuals will be provided at the beginning of the course; cost $40 at registration.
DISCIPLE III - Remember Who You Are
-DISCIPLE III is the third study in the four-phase DISCIPLE program. Participants in this thirty two week study will read the major and minor Old Testament prophets, with the exception of Daniel, and will read the thirteen letters traditionally attributed to Paul. To establish historical context in which the prophets spoke for God, daily reading assignments draw also on the books of Deuteronomy through Chronicles. Study manuals will be provided at the beginning of the course; cost $40 at registration. The only prerequisite for this class is DISCIPLE I.
