Guerrilla Bible Studies, Volume 4: Following Jesus: On Earth As In Heaven
The New Testament tells the story of God’s sending of his Son, Jesus of Nazareth, who launches a nonviolent liberation movement we are each recruited to join. Jesus proclaimed the Kingdom of God, on earth as in heaven. He taught and demonstrated a kingdom “not of this world,” empowering his disciples with the Holy Spirit to do the same.
This volume of Guerrilla Bible Studies: Following Jesus: On Earth as in Heaven is the fourth in a series of 52 discipleship Bible studies that follow Guerrilla Gospel: Reading the Bible for Liberation in the Power of the Spirit. In this collection you will find practical guidelines for facilitating liberating Bible studies that mobilize people. These thirteen Bible studies have been tried-and-tested in jails, rural communities in the global South, frontline North American and European settings, and in graduate-level theology schools. Each study focuses on how Jesus demonstrated, taught, and recruited disciples into his non-violent mission movement. Each study is laid out for easy use by Bible study facilitators, including questions, suggestions for guiding the study, explanations, background information about the text, and invitations and calls to action for the participants.
