Harmony Bible Index – Phase 5c

MISSIONAL MINISTRY (about 15 months, ongoing)

The focus of Phase 5 is a missional lifestyle spanning Sections 53-184 which we’ve broken into four parts:

The Gospels are replete with stories from these last 15 months in the life of Christ. It begins with the appointing of the first twelve apostles, includes scores of miracles, the parables of Christ, many teachings to his disciples, his trial, crucifixion, resurrection, later appearances, and the Great Commission. Disciples in this phase have a lifestyle which is renown. The fruit and followers from years of ministry humbles their heart by the knowledge of the grace and Truth of God which saved and transformed their life, and among them some are called to significant roles and international ministry. Simple or immense their ministry aims to honor Christ alone.

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.
