 Disciple 1V


        The title of this study is "Under the Tree of Life".  It is a thirty two week study that looks at

the Psalms as  Israel's hymnbook and prayer book and leads naturally to an emphasis on

worship in the study. Present  through  the entire study is the sense of living toward completion,

toward the climax of the message and the  promise, extravagantly pictured in the Revelation..


        In addition to Psalms and Revelation the study concentrates on the Writings - Ruth, 1 & 2

Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon,

 Lamentations, and Daniel.  Torah,  Prophets, and Writings make up the Hebrew

  Scriptures.  Writings  include all the books not in Torah or the  Prophets.


          New Testament Scriptures include the Gospel of John, 1,2,3 John, James, Jude, and



     In order to take Disciple 1V, you should have had Disciple 1. 


         Mary and I will offer this course starting  Wednesday, August  2nd., from 6:45 - 8:45 in

Room 132 in Keheley.  Registration will start July 2nd. and end July 23 at which time books

may be picked up from the office. Chapter 1 should be read prior to the first session on August

2nd. A video will be shown at each session featuring a prominent scholar.


         If you know of others who have had Disciple 1 and would be interested in Disciple 1V,

please invite them  to attend .


         Mary and I have led Disciple 1, 11, 111, and Christian Believer since being at St. Andrew

and we are looking forward to this study as well.
