Every person in the Bible is a supporting actor in God's story—each revealing who God is and what His will is for human beings both then and now. In these characters, we see a glimpse of ourselves, coming to understand our failings, our potential, and God's purpose through it all.
In this sixth volume of the Characters series you will encounter some of the first followers of Jesus. Through the stories of people like Martha, Thomas, Peter, and Nicodemus, you will catch a fresh vision of what Jesus meant when He extended the call to real people to "Follow Me." Though they only understood in part, these early followers of Jesus eventually embraced the true identity of Jesus and His call, and through them, you can rediscover what it means to follow Jesus today.
