Prof. Abraham Oh presents his article on “The Meaning of Disciple of Christ in the Gospel of Matthew” at the 12th on Oct. 29, 2015.

In this article he points out that the meaning of disciple of Christ can be found in Jesus’ sermons in the Gospel of Matthew. In His first sermon, Jesus teaches that the meaning of disciple of Christ is to live a moral life (Matt. 5-7). In the second sermon, Jesus teaches that the disciple of Christ follows Jesus’ desire to preach the Gospel to the world (Matt. 10-12). In the third sermon, Jesus teaches that the reward for the disciple of Christ is the Kingdom of Heaven (Matt. 13). In the fourth sermon, Jesus teaches that the meaning of the disciple of Christ is to practice the life of the faith community. In His last sermon, Jesus teaches that the meaning of the disciple of Christ is to be ready for Jesus’ return and to help non-believers to be ready for Jesus’ return as well.
