"Are discipleship and spiritual formation different?"

"Are discipleship and spiritual formation different?" 

This might be a bit of an oversimplification but basically but: "No! Discipleship has roots in Gospels and Spiritual Formation in Pauline literature."

(I also think education is another way of talking about these things to some extent. I talk about these things more in my opening lecture for my Discipleship in Community course).


  1. Is there a difference between discipleship and spiritual formation or are they one and the same? If different, how would you define them?

    @jr_briggs No, the same. But different NT origins: discipleship (Gospels) vs. Spiritual Formation (Pauline). Also Christian education.
