What did discipleship look like in the first-century Galilean world? What did Jesus and other leading rabbis of his day expect from their students and followers? How can this first-century understanding impact and energize our current approaches and understandings of being disciples? After all, you cannot make a disciple until you are first a disciple yourself. This presentation will cover four over-arching areas with which every follower of Jesus should be familiar and practicing.
