[ma·thetes] noun: pupil, student, learner, disciple
The Greek word mathetes, used throughout the New Testament, is translated as “disciple.” The definition includes the idea of being a learner, of sitting under another as a pupil, and of becoming like the one who is the teacher. Mathetes: The Making of a Disciple was written for believers who want to spend the year focused on what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Within the study, weekly lessons support eight areas of discipleship:
- Living in Worship
- Undertaking Holy Disciplines
- Using God’s Gifts Wisely
- Acting Out in Faith
- Coming Back to God
- Relating to God
- Discipling Others
- The Bridge to Missions
Mathetes: The Making of a Disciple guides the believer in the journey of maturity and multiplication . . . from personal worship and spiritual disciplines to lifestyles of faith and intentional relationships. This guide can help any believer progress systematically through the process of discipleship––learning how to be and make a disciple.
