Called to be apostles

In 2018, FAITH continues to offer the column, Discipleship 101, based on Sherry Weddell’s books, Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus (2012) and Fruitful Discipleship: Living the Mission of Jesus in the Church and the World (2017). Sherry is a leading voice in the Catholic world in the field of forming missionary disciples – engaged Catholics who strive to grow as disciples of Jesus and go evangelize, sharing the Gospel with others.

Is there proof that Jesus existed as an historical person?

In past columns of Theology 101, we have explored the question of God’s existence. We have examined several classical arguments that attempted to approach the question by making an appeal to human reason. Now, we must turn our attention to another, equally significant challenge for Christians. Did Jesus really exist as an historical person? Is there any historical proof that he did?

GROW as a disciple of Jesus: Work together to build God's kingdom

“Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two.” (Mk 6:7)

When my kids were little, one sentence that could guarantee a wrinkle in my patience was, “I do it myself!” I appreciated their independence, but sometimes they chose the most impossible tasks for a toddler to try solo, and they always seemed to do it when we were in a hurry. They just didn’t understand the importance of asking for help.
