From Cokesbury, Disciple has probably been the most popular commitment Bible study for quite a long time. It includes the foundational study, Disciple I, but also three others, as well as several shorter studies. In 2016, Disciple began offering DISCIPLE Fast Track, two 12-week studies, one each on the Old Testament and the New Testament.
“DISCIPLE is a program of disciplined Bible study aimed at developing strong Christian leaders. The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. DISCIPLE draws upon the work of scholars, the personal Bible reading and study of the participant, and dynamic group discussion to aid understanding of the Bible.
“The first study in the program is DISCIPLE: Becoming Disciples through Bible Study. It serves as the basis for all other studies in the DISCIPLE family that follow. Over the course of 34 weeks, the study covers the entire Bible (Old and New Testaments) following the biblical story from Creation to the New Jerusalem.
According to Cokesbury and students, “DISCIPLE aims at transformation, not just information and calls on persons to be changed by God’s Word.”
