Following Jesus is more than believing certain doctrines and behaving certain ways. It means seeing your life shaped more into the image of Christ. The gospel of Matthew presents one of Jesus' most influential messages to his followers: the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7). In it Jesus teaches about the essence of discipleship—the character, conduct, and commitment reflected in a genuine Christ-follower.
This companion booklet to the Celebrate Matthew DVD Bible study provides the additional resources you need for group study, interactive learning, and life application. You'll also find tips and techniques that allow a facilitator to lead an effective small group meeting with a minimum of preparation time. Or, you can use the DVD and participant guide for an exciting personal Bible study.
