This blog is a teaching ministry of the Disciples Global Network designed to provide disciples of Jesus with studies on the basics of the Christian faith.

Our goal is to understand scriptural passages in their literary and historical contexts, and in light of the theological center of the Bible - The Death and Resurrection of Jesus - All the promises of God and His "mysteries" find their significance in him.

The Apostle Paul declared that the "forms of this age" are in the process of "passing away" due to the death of Jesus, his resurrection, and his exaltation to reign at the right hand of God. All things have become new; nothing can ever be the same. This includes the identity of the people of God. Even now, the “age to come" has commenced and is making inroads wherever the gospel of the kingdom is proclaimed. The promised new creation began in the resurrection of Jesus, the "firstborn of the dead."

The stress in our studies is on a contextual approach - A scriptural passage must first be read in its own context. To whom was it addressed originally and for what purpose?
