God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! That is not only our motto here on “Encounter God’s Truth,” but it also gives motivation for teaching the Bible to others. This week, Dr. John Whitcomb turns to one of his favorite passages to explain the “Characteristics of True Discipleship.” He will show how a disciple must be trained to teach others the whole Word of God. Of course, you should not be surprised that on this program our emphasis is on communicating the truth of Scripture, and we hope that will be clear to you again today. And you will want to stay with us to the end, when host Wayne Shepherd asks Dr. Whitcomb what kinds of steps a Christian should take in implementing a 2 Timothy 2:2-type of ministry in his or her life and family.
