The course will explore the rich, varied, and challenging models of discipleship that appear in the books of the New Testament including the gospels, the letters of 1 Corinthians, Philippians, Colossians, James, Hebrews, and the book of Revelation. We will identify the various aspects of Christian discipleship as understood by the various early Christian communities and discuss how each first century model can be re-appropriated in Christian life and ministry in the Church and world today.
