Introduction

GCSE Coursework: Religious Education OCR 1930A Paper 1 Luke's Gospel: Discipleship Describe with examples from Luke's gospel or the act of the Apostles, some occasions when Jesus chose people who would become his Disciples. The first occasion I have chosen when Jesus choose people to be his disciples is from Luke chapter 5 verse 1-11. In this chapter we get a glimpse of Jesus preaching the Word of God near the lake of Gennesaret to many people. Since Jesus was by a Lake, he came across a two boats that appeared to be left behind by fishermen, who were busy washing their nets. Jesus then got into one of the boats (owned by Simon) and began to preach to the people, from there. When Jesus had finished preaching to all the people, he asked Simon to do something for him. Jesus wanted Simon to go further into the lake, were it was more deep, and to throw his net into the lake. ...read more.

Jesus then replied, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance". In this Chapter of Luke's Gospel, we get the impression that Jesus calls the most unlikely people, to follow his path of good. Levi being a tax collector over 2000 years ago ripped people off by adding extra taxes to their payments. Levi then invites Jesus to a banquet since he has now accepted Jesus into his heart. With the Pharisees and teachers of law, furious with Jesus eating and drinking with tax collectors Jesus replies to them "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" which portrays a sense of loving and acceptance to his family. The third story I have chosen is also from Luke's gospel Chapter 6, verse 12-19. In this story Jesus travels to a mountain to pray with his 12 disciples. ...read more.

Conclusion

Tell her to help me", but Jesus replied, "Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken from her". From this story we get the impression that Mary is a follower of Christ and deeply believes in the Christian faith, which pleases Jesus as he replies to Martha "Mary has chosen what is better". We also learn that Jesus has faith in both sisters, but only wants them to listen to the word of God, which he carries across in a way that Martha didn't understand. Since Jesus has seen how committed Mary is, he has now accepted her into being one of his disciples (not one of the 12) since the word of God is really important to her. In conclusion all these disciples had the commitment to Jesus and where eager to follow in his footsteps. They may have not had the power to heal the sick and cure the ones full of evil, but they had the inner strength to preach the word of God and to acknowledge Jesus' actions as a leader. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
