Following the Way: A Biblical View of Discipleship
The Calling of Saint Matthew, Caravaggio (1599-1600)

On the night before His Passion, Jesus revealed to the apostles in the Upper Room that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (cf. John 14:6). Perhaps it’s easier to understand how or why Jesus—as God—is Truth itself or that He is the source and summit of eternal Life, than it is to understand what he means by calling himself “the way.” What does it mean for Jesus to be the Way? And how does that come to bear on those of us who are trying to follow him in the Way as his present-day disciples? In this five-week study, we will unpack these questions by turning our attention to the Gospels, primarily Matthew, Mark, and Luke, to see the specific ways in which they reveal the Way of Jesus.

Be forewarned, this Way is not easy—it is one that is “narrow,” requires childlike trust, and demands that we “take up [our] cross daily.” But it is also the one that leads to the crown of eternal life, by which we will reign with Him forever in unending bliss, and behold Him as He is. Whether you are an experienced traveler or are looking for a reason to get off the couch and hit the trail, there will be something unique for everyone to learn on this journey—because through the Holy Spirit, Jesus calls to each of us with a message we specifically need to hear. Come join us as we seek together to follow Jesus along the Way by listening attentively to his voice in Sacred Scripture.
