Have you ever wondered what it really means to be a follower of Jesus – especially during the time of his ministry?

I’m so excited to share that RVL Discipleship: The Study – with renowned teacher and Bible scholar Ray Vander Laan – is back with two new seasons! Created by Focus on the Family, this streaming series takes you on an engaging journey through biblical history. Join along as Vander Laan examines what it means to be a follower of Christ through the cultural, historical and otherwise contextual lens of Scripture.

Jesus’ original disciples really knew their Bible, and these thought-provoking episodes will equip you as a modern-day follower of Christ. Building on the tools and central themes from Season 1 about how we are meant to interact with Scripture, you’ll explore a great variety of themes in Seasons 2 and 3:

  • The roots of discipleship
  • How God trained and established the nation of Israel in preparation for Jesus’ ministry
  • Jesus as a man, our God made flesh, who chose to reveal himself as a 1st-century rabbi to a 1st-century Jewish audience

With each streaming season, you get:

  • Unlimited access to all 10 episodes
  • Downloadable leader’s guide (included as an attachment in your digital download)
  • Downloadable participant’s study guide (included as an attachment in your digital download)

I pray these episodes will encourage you in your walk with Christ, just like they have for me.
