As we sojourn along in our Tell me the story of Jesus study program ... We've only scratched the surface in learning about the miracles that Jesus
worked while He was on earth. In healing the sick, He fulfilled the
prophecy that Isaiah spoke of in
took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses.
You will find in the First Disciples Bible study that there was even a time when Jesus
instructed the first disciples of Jesus to have a small ship awaiting Him because
the crowds were so heaven and they might throng Him. He healed so
many that those who had diseases pressed upon Him to touch Him so
they could be healed. Unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down
before Him and cried, You are the Son of God. He seriously ordered
them not to make Him known.
Here is an interesting little First Disciples Bible study story about the first disciples of Jesus
for you. A scribe came and said to Jesus, Master, I'll follow you
wherever you go. Jesus said to him, The foxes have holes, and the
birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has no place to lay
Now wait just a minute here, you may
be thinking ... Jesus was homeless? Absolutely right. During the
time of His ministry for 3 1/2 years, He had no "home." Think about
that the next time you see a homeless person. The first disciples of Jesus also left their homes and families as to be able to follow and serve Jesus properly. Yep, the first disciples of Jesus were homeless too.
One of the first disciples of Jesus said to Him,
(in reference to following Him) Lord, allow me first to go and bury
my father. But Jesus said to him, Follow me; and let the dead bury
their dead, but you go and preach the Kingdom of God.
Before we look into what Jesus responded ...
Disciples ... What are Disciples?
Disciples are those who follow and/or serve another.
Who were the FIRST Disciples disciples of Jesus?
THE FIRST TWELVE DISCIPLES BIBLE STUDY LIST
THE FIRST DISCIPLES OF JESUS NAMES
Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The
first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James
the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip, and
Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of
Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon the
Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
The first disciples of Jesus became what is called Apostles. You will discover in the First Disciples Bible study that there were MANY more disciples of Jesus at that time and the number of the disciples of Jesus has been growing from that time until this very moment. YOU may even be a disciple of Jesus as that is what a Christian is.
Why do you suppose Jesus said "Let the dead bury
their dead?" ... Well, first of all, if the deceased
was righteous, their soul is in
Abraham's Bosom and their body (as we learned way back in the book of
Genesis) will turn back into dust. (If you would like to study what
happens after death, check out the
Fear of death study.) The time that is spent in mourning, could be better spent serving
the Lord instead. REJOICE, that the souls are home.
Now, back to the First Disciples Bible study ... Jesus said to another of the first disciples of Jesus,
Follow me, and the disciple said, Lord, I'll follow you but first
let me go say goodbye to my family. Jesus answered, No man, having
put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom
of God. Note: If you have put your hand to the plough, you have started working on
something, or set your mind to something. Jesus meant that if you
have passion for the Lord, you can't put other things above it or
you're not worthy of His Kingdom. How many times has He asked us to
follow Him, and we've found other things more important? Priorities
are very important. This may be a good time to evaluate the
priorities in your life.
When Jesus saw crowds of people
around Him, He went into a ship with the first disciples and told them to
go to the other side of the sea of Galilee. A great tempest came up
in the sea and the ship was tossed about by the waves, but Jesus had
fallen asleep. The disciples came to Him and woke Him up saying,
Lord, save us or we'll die! Jesus said, Why are you afraid, O ye of
little faith? He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there
was a great calm.
The disciples were surprised and they asked each
other, What kind of man is He? Even the winds and the sea obey Him!
The First Disciples Bible study has made it very clear to us that it may be a bit difficult to adjust and adapt (for some) to the true meaning of being a disciple of Jesus but, the first disciples of Jesus persevered and so many more disciples of Jesus afterward fought the good fight and continued to spread the Gospel and that is why YOU were able to learn of Jesus in the first place at some point in your life. The first disciples of Jesus carried on. Will you?.
