After briefly examining the discipling model of teaching as practised in the world of the Ancient Near East, a detailed study of New Testament texts investigates the practice of discipling by Jesus and his followers and in the church of the first century. An understanding of the concept of discipling is gained by gradually refining its definition as the study progresses through a contemporary examination of other informal models of education. Religious and educational research findings are explored to enable the validity of the discipling model to be determined. Finally the definition is used as a benchmark to examine various contemporary educational theories within the community of faith.ContentsForewordAcknowledgmentsPart 1--Introduction and Background to DisciplingChapter 1IntroductionWhy focus on discipling?Working definitionsAims and methods of investigationLimits of inquirySequence of argumentNotes to Chapter 1Chapter 2Background to the Concept of DisciplingEducational practices in the Ancient Near EastEducational practices in Ancient IsraelConclusionsNotes to Chapter 2Part 2--Discipling in the GospelsChapter 3Discipling in Mark's GospelThe Discipling relationshipA new discipling communityThe discipling modelConclusions and re-examination of working definitionNotes to Chapter 3Chapter 4Discipling in Matthew's GospelThe discipling relationshipThe discipling modelConclusions and re-examination of working definitionNotes to Chapter 4Chapter 5Discipling in Luke's GospelWomen in the disciple bandThe discipling relationshipThe discipling modelConclusions and re-examination of working definitionNotes to Chapter 5Chapter 6Discipling in John's GospelDistinguishing between term and concept of 'disciple'The discipling relationshipThe discipling modelConclusion and re-examination of working definitionNotes to Chapter 6Chapter 7Conclusions and Provisional Expansion of DefinitionThe role of Jesus, the 'discipler'Expectations of disciples in the GospelsWorking definition revisitedPersonal reflectionsNotes to Chapter 7Part 3--Discipling in the Apostolic EraChapter 8Discipling in the Acts of the ApostlesChanges in the understanding of disciplingElements in revised working definitionDiscipling methodsConclusionsNotes to Chapter 8Chapter 9Discipling in the Epistles and RevelationElements in a revised working definition of disciplingConclusionsSpiritual gifts and disciplingNotes to Chapter 9Part 4--Evaluation of Discipling as an Educational Practice for Today's ChurchChapter 10Refining the DefinitionExploration of teachingSchooling or formal educationLife related, informal educationDefinition of disciplingReviewNotes to Chapter 10Chapter 11Congruence with the Christian FaithCore beliefs of the Christian faithCongruence of disciplingConclusionsNotes to Chapter 11Chapter 12Congruence with Findings of Present Day Religious and Educational ResearchResearch into learning in Australian church lifeThe schooling modelAlternatives to the schooling modelConclusionsNotes to Chapter 12Chapter 13Congruence of Discipling with Educational Theories in Today's ChurchChristian educationThe small group movementTheological educationSummary findingsNotes to Chapter 13Chapter 14ConclusionsThe initial research questionFindings and definitionCongruence with core values and beliefs of Christian faith community and with contemporary educational theory and practiceMain conclusionsRecommendations for future researchRecommendations for future church practiceA personal concluding commentBibliographyIndexList of TablesTable 1: The discipling relationshipTable 2: The discipling model
