What’s a good place to begin a bible study about discipleship?
The calling of the very first disciples seems like the perfect place to start!
Jesus comes preaching the gospel/good news. Spoiler Alert! Next week’s bible studies will be all about the gospel. For now, here’s the briefest breakdown of this one verse gospel message in Mark 1:15:
Walking along the Sea of Galilee, Jesus calls Simon (Peter), his brother Andrew, and the brothers James and John.
Write down the answers to these questions in your Field Notes:
These men were not the best of the best (Acts 4:13). Their age and profession tells us that they had not been selected by any other rabbis. Their fathers and grandfathers were fishermen and that’s what they would be.
But Jesus changes all of that. He believes in them before they ever believe in him. And when they agree to follow Jesus their whole life changes. Our experience should be no different!
