Emphasis shifts from the broad view to the deeper, more detailed view.

DISCIPLE PURPLE

Disciple PurpleRemember Who You Are

REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE is the third study in the DISCIPLE programme and is available to adults and youth who are graduates of BDTBS.
REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE concentrates on the Old Testament prophets and the letters of Paul. The prophets and Paul are continually calling their hearers and readers back to their God and to a sense of who they are as a “set apart” people.

Old Testament

The Prophets and the community cannot be separated. The prophets spoke for God, out of the community, to the community.

The Prophets

1. God’s People Weep
2. God Sent Messengers
3. Starved for the Words of the Lord
4. God’s Faithfulness
5. God’s Requirement

7. God Rules the World
8. God’s Anguish

12. God Will Save
13. God’s Vision for a New World
14. God’s City of Peace
15. God Will Restore Zion
16. God’s Mission for Israel

 

New Testament

Paul’s experience of the risen Lord, his relationship to the community he addressed, his Jewish traditions, and the Greco-Roman culture of his day merged in his writing of the letters. Paul used the language of his culture to carry the message that arose out of his roots in the Hebrew Scriptures and Judaism.

The Letters of Paul

17. Called Through God’s Grace
18. The Letters of Paul
19. The Lord Is Coming
