About Me



My name is S.A. Bishop. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God, the Word of God, the Lamb of God and our soon coming King. I represent no church, denomination or religious organization. This website and the views expressed on it are mine. The purpose of this website is to provide a straightforward approach to the Word of God, and the meaning of this Word of truth  for your life.



According to Strong’s Concordance one of the words used to translate the Greek word "Syniēmi” into the English of the King James Version was the word “understand.”  Strong’s goes on to define this word into English as “to put together” or “to comprehend.”   In his Lexical Aids to the New Testament, Spiros Zodhiates goes on to say, “when the word is confined to the sphere of mental perception it means to hear, notice, perceive, recognize, understand, put it all together and make sense out of it. Thus, it strictly denotes the collecting together of the single features of an object into a whole, as collecting the pieces of the puzzle and putting them together.”  In like manner, teachings from the Holy Spirit in the study of God’s Word will lead to understanding.

Jesus said, “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” When men look for gold they dig for their earthly treasure. Well, the Word of God is more precious then fine gold, so if you’re willing to put forth the effort, you will obtain a heavenly treasure. It’s all up to you.

Many years ago I read that long before Israel entered the promise land or considered having a king to reign over them, the Lord dictated to Moses a command that the future king would be required to perform.


      Deuteronomy 17

“When you come to the land which the LORD your God is giving you, and possess it and dwell in it, and say, ‘I will set a king over me like all the nations that are around me,’ 15 you shall surely set a king over you whom the LORD your God chooses; one from among your brethren you shall set as king over you; you may not set a foreigner over you, who is not your brother. 16 But he shall not multiply horses for himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt to multiply horses, for the LORD has said to you, ‘You shall not return that way again.’ 17 Neither shall he multiply wives for himself, lest his heart turn away; nor shall he greatly multiply silver and gold for himself.
18 “Also it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write for himself a copy of this law in a book, from the one before the priests, the Levites. 19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes, 20 that his heart may not be lifted above his brethren, that he may not turn aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left, and that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children in the midst of Israel.”


Since it says in Revelation 1:5-6 that Jesus Christ has made those that are His kings and priests; I took the above passage to heart and started writing out each verse as I studied. To my joy, I discovered this process drew me deeper into the Word of God and truly blessed my soul. Now the Word of God ministers to me on a higher level as I meditate on each word. As a result, by the grace of God, I gain knowledge and I am able to retain much more.


The Disciples Project Bible Studies represent just a few of my personal studies throughout the years.


There are four basic elements to these studies:


1)    Prayer

I pray, in Jesus’ name, and ask for guidance on how I should proceed in the study and for revelations along the way. I am always amazed.

2)    Scripture References

 broader range of verses are provided to ensure key verses are not taken out of context.

3)    Notes

These are revelations and things I wanted to recall.

4)    Word Definitions

Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance is an excellent tool for those of us who are not ancient Greek and Hebrew scholars.


These studies are by no means exhaustive, but I hope they will help motivate you to seek the living God; especially if you are not already doing so. Please don’t be held by the limits of these studies. Take the initiative and go beyond. Trust me, you will be rewarded for your efforts.


Before reading these studies or before beginning your own personal study each day, I would suggest that you take the time to pray and ask the Lord to show you wonderful things in His Word. To guide you along your way. Remember, it’s not by might nor by power but by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6). Without the Holy Spirit leading and guiding you, the words will remain on the page. But if you rely on the Holy Spirit, your Teacher, for guidance, the living Word will instruct you and draw you closer to God (John 14:26).


The Word of God says, “Freely you have received, freely give” (Mathew 10:8). Therefore, these studies and everything else presented on the Disciples Project website are free to you. I hope you will benefit from them.
