Discipleship: the calling to …

July 20, 2015


What does it mean to be a disciple?  The regular definition of ‘disciple’ is a pupil, a learner, a follower.  These terms are also fairly abstract—so what is discipleship about?  This series aims to look at what Jesus said ‘discipleship’ was about to his first disciples.  In the church calendar cycle, 2015 is the year of Mark, so we will explore the shape of discipleship and what it means for us to follow in the steps of the first disciples of Jesus through the gospel of Mark.  (So this is just a perspective of discipleship from Mark, it is not discipleship in all its completeness.)
