PATHWAYS Explorer Course: “What Does the Bible Say About Friendship?”

“No one has greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends,” Jesus tells us in John 15:13 (Common English Bible). What makes a friend worthy of laying down one’s life to save that friend? The Bible has much to teach us about the value of trusted companions for life’s journey, especially the journey of discipleship that we as Christians are called to make.
