WOW – doesn’t Wednesday come around so quick!!!
Rev Kevin has another story from the Book of Mark, one of the Gospels in the New Testament in the Bible.
The disciples were the students of Jesus during his ministry, which sometimes means only the Twelve Apostles Most of the attention in the gospels is given to a specific group of disciples called by Jesus on the top of a mountain and commissioned by him as the Twelve Apostles.
These men are:
- Simon, called Peter
- Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter
- James (called the son of Zebedee by Mark and Matthew)
- John (Mark and Matthew identify him as the brother of James, son of Zebedee)
- Bartholomew, named Nathanael in John
- Matthew (whom the Matthew evangelist identifies as a publican), named Levi in Luke and Mark
- James, the son of Alphaeus
- Simon, called a zealot in Mark, Matthew, and Luke
- Judas Iscariot
- Thaddaeus, called Thaddaeus by Mark, Lebbaeus Thaddaeus by Matthew, and Judas, brother of James by Luke
- Paul became an apostle after Jesus’ death and resurrection.
