The Mission Bible Study Book asks disciples to explore the question "What does a disciple do in relationship with the world?" Knowledge and community are only good as much as they serve a disciple on his or her mission. This study begins and ends with Jesus as it guides growing disciples along the journey to missionality together with Him. Like all the releases in the Disciples Path series, The Mission uses teaching, questions, conversation, exercises, and individual study to facilitate transformational discipleship through this dynamic yet personal Bible study experience.
The sessions include:
1. Christ Came to Us
2. Christ Came with a Mission
3. Christ Came to Die
4. We Die with Christ
5. We Go with Christ
6. We Go Together with Christ
The study includes an introduction to the weekly session topic, guided prayer options, and Scripture focus with text and narrative explanation that drives the weekly meeting. Also included each week are discussion questions and group exercises that reinforce the primary teaching points of each topic. Individual study and out-of-group activities have all been crafted to help users take their next step as disciples of Christ. These optional activities include but are not limited to reading plans, prayer exercises, personal study, and journaling.
