Discipleship is movement. Being a disciple is a progression on the way toward a fuller understanding of who Jesus is and what is involved in following him. Along the way that Jesus guided his disciples they encountered disappointment, suffering, death, and ultimately were led to new life. Everyone was unseeing as to who Jesus was and neither did they anticipate the form his kingdom would take.

The questions that Jesus asked his disciples and the crowds to encourage their sight are just as relevant to our culture and circumstance as they were to the original audience. Blinded by our passion for self, Jesus could easily ask “do you still not understand?”

In Essential Questions, Scott Perkins examines the questions that Jesus asked in Mark 8-10 and applies them to the unhealthy ways we see as we live as disciples in a culture that pursues a different kingdom.

Jesus taught it. Nature proves it. Good trees produce good fruit.

Unfortunately, discipleship has turned into trying to produce good decisions, behaviors, and relationships without examining the health of the roots.

Your identity—where you seek worth and significance—feeds the root of who you are.

Tree of Lies equips you to experience transformation in your decisions, behaviors, and relationships by developing awareness of your lies, your root, the truth, and the fruit.
