Discipleship in the Old Testament

Discipleship in the Old Testament

Discipleship means to be a “learner” of someone. Ultimately, we want to be a community that are learning Jesus together. That being said, discipleship is not just an idea we find in the New Testament. In fact, in the Bible discipleship happens from the very first moments of creation until the end of time! We see in the opening chapters of Genesis, God’s discipling heart as he gently pursues humanity despite our sin. There are several discipleship relationships we see in the Old Testament as men and women, old and young, all sought to learn God together. Join us as we dig into some of the most exciting friendships in the Bible as we explore each narrative through the lens of discipleship!
