Jesus' Parables for Disciples
by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson
in Luke's Gospel
An 805-page devotional Bible study commentary on
Jesus' training of his disciples, designed to form authentic disciples in
our day. Part of the JesusWalk Bible Study Series.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to be trained as a disciple by Jesus himself? To be one of that band of Twelve and then Seventy who followed him around Galilee and Judea? As they walked with Jesus, he molded them as disciples.
Discipleship Training in Luke's Gospel is a conscious attempt to put you and me in the place of those first disciples. It's a JesusWalk. Over the span of 120 lessons, you'll look at each of Jesus' healing acts, each word, each confrontation, each parable, and ask the question: What should I as a disciple be learning from this?
Written over a period of three years and experienced by over 5,000 students from 123 countries, Discipleship Training in Luke's Gospel is being used by God to mold many in Christ's image. Now slightly revised and with new maps, this series can help form you as a disciple.
Preachers will be glad for the careful exegesis of each passage, footnoted research, and relentless digging that results in an authentic, present-day interpretation. Teachers and small group leaders will use the deep, probing questions at the end of each lesson. But the one who will benefit most is you, the earnest disciple on your quest to learn genuine discipleship at the feet of the Master.

Here's what people are saying:
"I teach a Sunday school class in my church and we've been studying the Gospel of Luke for several months. Your study has been invaluable and so applicable to life today." -- Ann O. Campbell
"Penetrates below the surface of the text and exposes the heart of the Lord Jesus in his conversations and confrontations. You have been blessed with great insight." -- Pastor Nathan S. Eldridge
"I teach in a Catholic school, and you help me in my ministry to the children because you make the gospel clearer to me." -- Nancy Ritzel
"I've been using your online series on a weekly basis for the past two years... I find your commentary balanced, full of common sense and plainly stated." -- Bill Judt, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
"I have used your Luke series as a guide to teaching Sunday school. I am finishing up my second quarter of teaching using this material and would like to go one more quarter. I have totally enjoyed the material and so has my class. I have gotten many comments on how great the class has been. Thanks." -- Howard McCraney, Church of Christ, Alabama
"God called my wife and I to start a new church in the Atlanta area. God clearly led us to embrace expository preaching, specifically the book of Luke. As a church in the 'missional' camp, we knew that our people would need a very clear grasp on the gospel before anything else. Last Sunday we finished the last verse in Luke. While I drew from several really good resources (commentaries, sermons, etc.), your lessons on Luke very quickly became the core text I used to study the writings of Luke. Of course, God's voice straight from the original text drove the whole thing but the perspective the Holy Spirit gave you was so helpful. For a year-and-a-half, we journeyed, in part, with you through Luke." -- Tim Coleman, Lead Pastor, Browns Mill Church, Newnan, GA
"Your commentary on Luke is one of the finest and I want you to
know it is highly valued as I prepare to lead our group." -- George
