Today, all over the world, the followers of Christ are known as Christians. But who is a Christian? Where does the word Christian come from? Interestingly, the early Christians did not call themselves Christians, and nor did Jesus use the word Christians to describe His followers. From the account of the scriptures, the believers were actually named Christians by non-Christians. While the record seems to indicate it was used in a positive way, it was still a nickname given by gentiles to believers. The word Christian comes from the Greek word “christianos” which simply means follower of Christ.
In this 7 part bible study series, we will be digging deep into the ways to rediscover kingdom discipleship. Talking points such as:
- Are there downsides to using the word Christians to describe ourselves?
- Are there benefits to defining ourselves as disciples?
- What does it really mean to be a disciple?
