Jesus' earthly life is far in the past, but through the Gospels we can join his disciples as they accompany him along the roads of first-century Palestine, watching and listening to him. We can also hear Jesus speaking to us and we can speak to him. The six readings in this study are all taken from the accounts of Jesus' journeys with his disciples in the middle part of Matthew's Gospel. Six sessions include questions for discussion and application, commentary and explanations, quotes and prayer helps along with the text to be studied individually or with a group. Group sessions take about one and a half hours.
In the book of Matthew, Jesus teaches his disciples, and us, how to follow him. Matthew 10-20: On the Road with Jesus brings to life the teachings of Jesus as found in the book of Matthew.
