Harmony Bible is focused on helping equip disciples to make disciples. Five principles for ministry are seen throughout the chronological study of the Harmony of the Gospels. We have created a number of resources to help you make disciples including:

Harmony Bible - The Gospel LectionaryFor those who attend a liturgical church following the Revised Common Lectionary we’ve created the Lectionary Series. This series will help your members study the rest of the Gospel story as they study it in the context of the Harmony. Beginning with “Year A” we’ve also included, “Parsing the Collect” a post created by Fr. Rob Eaton.

Phase 3 | Sections 41-48
The ministry emphasis in Phase 3 is to be experiential. In the life of Christ it encompasses about 4-6 months of Jesus ministry beginning with his calling of the first four disciples and ending with a dialog with some prominent Jews after a banquet at Matthew’s home. Ministry in this phase engages disciples in active ministry to and with others in ministry that is: incarnational, relational, and experiential. Younger disciples (those in phase 2) are getting hands on experience in ministry with the guidance of  more mature disciples. Each experience builds up the faith, knowledge, and Christian integrity of the one another.

Phase 4 | Sections 49a-52
Phase four begins with the story of Jesus healing an invalid on the Sabbath and concludes a short 3-5 months thereafter just before appointing the first 12 Apostles. It’s a season in ministry which is very Intentional.  Disciples are actively sharing their faith, known to others as being a Christian, engaged in ministry.  When discipling others through this phase our priority is to equip them better for the ministry to which they are called. Key lessons include: reliance on the Holy Spirit, discipling others, and the unity of service and heart throughout whole Church.
