Huntsman Þ 9 Free download The Gospel of John the Beloved isn't like the other Gospels John includes stories details and symbols not found anywhere else in. I added Becoming the Beloved Disciple to the top of my list after reading Michael Austin s Goodreads review It just so happens that Austin also wrote the Foreword to the book which starts out with a profound story which I want to include hereSeveral years ago at the Catholic university where I worked I attended a lecture by Father Greg Boyle a Catholic priest who has spent much of his life ministering to gang members in Los Angeles When his presentation was over Father Boyle spent about a half an hour answering uestions from the audience I only remember one of the uestions which was Why don t you teach these young men to be good Christians and worship Jesus I will never forget the answer He said simply Jesus wants disciples he doesn t need a fan club That was an inspired priest Increasingly I am convinced that the gospel is in the doing To use the famed phrase from Gordon B Hinckley forget yourself and go to work If you want to convince someone of the truthfulness of the gospel it probably isn t going to be through a well thought out theological or historical argument It s going to be in the love they feel Didn t Christ teach by their fruits ye shall known themDifferent kinds not degrees of discipleshipGetting to the book itself Huntsman takes a uniue approach to the gospel of John I always found John intimidating at parts It starts with this confusing intro that I m never uite sure I m interpreting right In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God Add to that the Bread of Life discourse and the Intercessory prayer and you ve got me scratching my head uite a bit While Huntsman does add some new insights into each of these aspects the book isn t written as a verse by verse commentary on the gospel of John Instead he breaks the book down by character following the individual paths of discipleship According to Huntsman the gospel of John was designed to read yourself into the text The Samaritan woman at the well Nicodemus coming to the Lord in the night Thomas s doubts all were mean to highlight the different routes we take coming to ChristThere were two in particular that struck me The first was Nicodemus I was always a little unsure about Nicodemus but Huntsman gives a moving portrayal of Nicodemus as a man initially unsure but who comes to a full faith after the events of Christ s Atonement I like his summaryThe example of Nicodemus reminds us that we must be careful about judging the spiritual journeys of other people Sometimes we can be too uick to judge the faith of others faulting them for uestioning or perhaps insisting that people testify that they know when sometimes what is important is just believing or having the desire to believeI like that Huntsman asks us to not judge Nicodemus because I know I was guilty of doing so The other story that struck me was the story of Peter Huntsman makes clear from the outset that Peter wasn t perfect Not only was he not perfect he made some pretty big mistakesWhile the nickname the Rock that Jesus gave him upon his first call reflected his character as it was later known he had to grow into the role of a steady firm disciple Instead throughout the Gospel of John Peter is often portrayed as outspoken and zealous for Jesus but he also freuently misunderstood the Lord and was impulsive overconfident and even rash Yet his darkest moment when he three times denied knowing Jesus or being one of his followers stands out as Peter s greatest failingI like this I like this because yes most takes on Peter acknowledge his mistakes But I feel that they sometimes minimize them Denying Christ That s a big deal here To me Peter represents Church leadership We sometimes like to lionize them but when we actually confront the magnitude of some of their mistakes we can potentially lose our faith The gospel of John reminds us that leaders have weaknesses and their own set of challengesIn his conclusion I loved this summary statement on discipleshipIndeed a modern revelation teaches that different kinds of belief constitute different kinds of spiritual gifts To some it is given by the Holy Ghost to know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he was crucified for the sins of the world To others it is given to believe on their words that they also might have eternal life if they continue faithful I have tended to interpret the faith to believe on their words as a lesser faith But Huntsman s statement acknowledges them as two different spiritual gifts I think people with both kind of faith can contribute to the body of Christ We should be ready to embrace people who can testify that they know or that they believe or that they want to believe Voices from the Holocaust profound story which I want to include

I am often disappointed with the writing that comes out of CES and tend to be a bit skeptical with the constant flow of material that is published for the LDS audience I had listened to a few talks by Eric Huntsman and read an interview and decided to take this one on I was impressed and edified For some years now I have focused on discipleship in my personal spiritual studies Many of the sources were not traditional LDS figures but tended to be writers like Bonhoffer Borg Bruggerman etc Huntsman really nailed it Michael Austin whom I admire as a first rate Mormon scholar and writer did the forward which is an apt review of the book Here it isBecoming the Beloved Disciple is as its title might suggest a book about discipleship an important gospel concept that cannot uite be reduced to followership obedienceship believership or membership in any organizationTrue disciples both learn from and emulate their master Christ s disciples are the apostles who have been converted the sheep who have been found the prodigals who repent and the doubters who develop faith people with a variety of backgrounds and experiences who have been changed fundamentally by their personal relationship with a masterAs Huntsman presents it the two purposes of the Gospel of John are 1 to deliver a powerful and definitive testimony of the mission and divinity of Jesus Christ and 2 to give examples of the many different paths to becoming disciplesThe powerful testimony comes in Chapter One 11 18 and consists of the Hymn to Logos a poetic invocation of Christ s divinity The rest of the book consists largely of stories about people coming to the same understanding of Jesus that John gives us in the beginningThis is an immensely powerful and satisfying way to read both the theology and the narrative of our most challenging Gospel It connects the text by creating one great similarity out of many different pieces the calling of the apostles the dialogues with Nicodemus and the Samaritan woman the story of Martha Mary and Lazarus the betrayal of Peter the doubting of ThomasThese are very different stories about very different kinds of disciples coming to Christ in very different ways Some of them believe immediately while others believe only after coming through a period of doubt and disbelief Some experience miracles others feel the overwhelming call of divine love and others still must find a way to assent intellectually to the reality of the MessiahAnd John tells us these are all the right path because they all lead to Christ This is the point and it would be hard to imagine a important point to make To become beloved disciples we must learn to see the world as Christ sees it which means learning to love other people as Christ loves them Becoming the Beloved Disciple is a good starting point for the journey
