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:
- Apprenticeship – Phase 5a includes Section 53-70a beginning with the Appointment of the Twelve Apostles
- • Training – Phase 5b includes Sections 70b-101b beginning with the Commissioning of the Twelve
- • Multiplied Ministry – Phase 5c includes Sections 102a-127b beginning with the Commissioning the Seventy
- • Co-mission – Phase 5d includes Sections 128a-184 covering the events of Holy Week, the Great Commission, and Jesus’ Ascension
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 1 in the life of Jesus begins before time, includes the incarnation and early years of Christ’s life until the time he was about 30 years old. The thematic emphasis and principle for ministry is to be Incarnational.
This phase begins with the baptism of Jesus, and includes his temptation, his first followers, the wedding in Cana of Galilee, his dialog with Nicodemus and the woman at the well. It encompasses the 18-21 months after his baptism. The thematic emphasis and principle for ministry is to be Relational.
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 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.
