’There is a vast difference between being saved and
being a disciple, ... a relationship based on the knowledge of the person of
Christ, submission to the person of Jesus Christ, and obedience to the commands
of Jesus Christ.’ Dr. Pentecost observes. ’Our desire in these studies of the
New Testament teaching on discipleship is to unsettle you who have become so
comfortable, to disquiet you who have become so satisfied, in order that we
might become a people who. . . are disciples in truth.’
J. Dwight Pentecost was a
distinguished professor of Bible exposition at Dallas
Theological Seminary. He is the author of numerous books including Prophecy for
Today, Things to Come, and Things Which Become Sound Doctrine.
