• Is the Holy Spirit Really a Person? with Jim Beckman

    YDisciple - Who Is God?

    It's easy to think of the Holy Spirit as some sort of vague "essence" floating around somewhere, doing things that we can't see or find hard to comprehend. In this study, we'll look closely at the real Holy Spirit—a Person as real as the Father and the Son—with whom we are meant to have a relatio...

  • Is Jesus Really Divine? with Julianne Miles

    YDisciple - Who Is God?

    According to author C.S. Lewis, the notion that Jesus was simply a "good teacher" isn't sustainable. Lewis explains that he was either a liar, intentionally deceiving everyone; a lunatic, because he wasn't who he claimed to be but believed it anyway; or truly who he claimed to be: God in the fles...

  • Is God Really My Father? with Scott Powell

    YDisciple - Who Is God?

    It's one thing to think of God as the Creator; it's another to call him our "Father"—especially when so many of us have distorted ideas of what a father is. Yet, in spite of our bad or good experiences, God longs for us to put aside our confused impressions and love him as the Father he truly is....

    Who Is Jesus? Just a Good Man or Lord of Our Lives?

    YDisciple - The Creed: Symbolon for YDisciple

    Jesus is more than a good teacher or good example. He claimed to be God. And that claim challenges all of us to make an important choice: Will we accept Jesus as who he said he is?

    The Bible: God's Love Letter to Humanity

    YDisciple - The Creed: Symbolon for YDisciple

    The seventy-three books of the Bible come together to tell the story of God's saving plan. But is it merely an ancient document or collection of fables? Why do Catholics believe it is "inspired"—and what does "inspired" mean? In this session, we'll look at the Bible as an encounter in which the G...

    Called Session 2: What Is Discernment? with Fr. Christopher Martin

    Called: Discover Your Vocation by YDisciple

    God has called each of us to specific missions, based on who we are and the gifts he has given us. But how do we discern that calling? We can start with the "classroom of silence"—an exterior and interior place where we can discover the depths of prayer and learn to hear God's voice.

    Called: Discover Your Vocation by YDisciple

    The questions we yearn to answer are: "Who am I?" and "Why am I here?" To find the answers, we need to begin with an understanding of the true desires of our hearts and how those desires align with the God who loves us more than we love ourselves.

    The Journey: Trinity, Faith & the God Who Is Love

    YDisciple - The Creed: Symbolon for YDisciple

    The Bible reveals the mystery of who God is: God is love. God created us out of love, died for us out of love, and invites us on a journey of faith in which we live in his love. In this study, we'll look at the God who is Love and how that Love shows itself in the Trinity and the Faith.

    God has created each of us uniquely – to play a unique role in our time and our world. But how do we figure out what God is asking us to do? If he is calling us, why can’t we hear him more clearly? What will we have to take on or give up if we follow his call?

    Deep within every young man is a desire to be who God is calling him to be. But stepping up to the challenges of true manhood takes a stout heart and supernatural courage.

    In the very act of creation, God binds himself in a remarkable covenant. Man is the only creature capable of fully entering into that covenant with him, having been made in his image, bearing the stamp of his likeness.

    Dr. Tim Gray explores the question Jesus asks his disciples: Who do you say that I am? He provides a close reading of St. Peter’s confession of faith that Jesus is the “Christ, the Son of the Living God” (Mt 16:16). He accentuates how Peter’s confession undermines the Roman imperial cult.
