Discipleship Bible School
September 21 – December 18, 2019
What is a Discipleship Bible School (DBS)?
During this 12-week Introduction to the Bible course, students will be given an overview of “God’s story” and will discover the purposes of God in it. Students will read the entire Bible, observe the chronology of biblical events, better understand each book in its historical context, understand the harmony between the books, and recognize the different genres of literature and major themes found in all 66 books. By going directly to the source, students will learn the foundational truths of Christianity.
COST: € 2200
The Word of God is the foundation of faith.
What to Expect?
Topics in DBS generally follow the books you are chronologically studying. Although each book is studied to discover its original intent, you will also learn its various topics. For example, you will learn Worldview and Origins studying through Genesis, Exodus and Job. Or you might look at Leadership and Worship as you study the life of David in 1 & 2 Samuel, Chronicles and the Psalms. In studying Acts, you may find topics on Cross-Cultural Missions and the Cost of the Call. Each book is filled with insights to be discovered!
As a result, you will be able to share your faith more confidently with those seeking (evangelism) and have the knowledge to explain God’s Word more accurately to those who have already come to faith (discipleship). Consider DBS as a sequel to DTS. Students will continue the discipleship process that started in the DTS by addressing a variety of topics illuminated in the Scriptures, building godly character, and developing a lifelong hunger and love for the Word. This will not only be accomplished in the classroom, but also outside of class in one-on-ones, small groups, evangelism and mercy ministry opportunities in the community.
By the end of DBS, you will:
- Read through the whole Bible chronologically with discussion on the many topics in collective and small group settings
- Learn how to lead small Bible study groups using the inductive approach
- Make a creative timeline of God’s Story from Genesis to Revelation, tracing the following themes:
- Main biblical events
- Revelations about God’s character and nature
- God’s redemptive plan
- At the end of the course, give a 30-minute presentation of the Bible using elements from the themes mentioned above
