The First Disciples of Jesus (John 1:43-51)

Home » Teaching » New Testament » John » The First Disciples Of Jesus John 143 51 |  February 18, 2018

In this lesson we discuss the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist, which is mentioned in all four gospels. Why was Jesus' baptism necessary? Jesus then encounters his first disciples, and renames Simon as Peter. What was the significance of that? We explore this question, the source of great controversy related to claims made by the Roman Catholic Church. Finally, we are introduced to Nathaniel, a good-hearted skeptic whose conversion still inspires us today to lead other truth-seekers to the Stairway to Heaven.
