REVIEW: Beloved Disciple by Beth Moore

I have just finished Beth Moore’s Bible study “Beloved Disciple” for the second time. This time around, I was fortunate to study with a group using the video materials. It really adds a lot to the study experience. But this is a terrific Bible study even if you just do the workbook by yourself. The subject matter is Jesus, of course, but with a unique twist: getting to know the Lord through the eyes of the disciple who Jesus loved, John – one of the “sons of thunder”. John has always been my favorite apostle – probably because I identify with him so well. After doing this study, I feel even more closely associated with John.

Beth Moore takes the student on a fascinating and life-changing journey through the gospel of John, the apostle’s three letters: 1-2-3 John, and the book of Revelation. If possible, do the study with the videos and a group. If not, do the study anyway. Beth Moore is gifted in the area of teaching and inspiring. I am thankful that she has been one of my teachers.
