                           THE TWELVE DISCIPLES


Who are the Twelve Disciples?


Their Backgrounds

Judas Iscariot, who was from Judea.

* Their occupations ranged from fisherman to tax collectors and
revolutionaries.

* Some were married. (see Mark 1:29-31; 1 Corinthians 9:3-6)

Their Purpose

* After being baptized by John the Baptist and spending 40 days
in the wilderness, Jesus started teaching and many people started
following him.

* After a night of prayer and meditation, Jesus chose twelve men
out of all those who were following him.

* These twelve men would be Jesus' main focus of instruction.

* These disciples were selected to let the world know of God's
love, that God sent Jesus to redeem the world. (see John I%:23)


Their Mission

* These are the twelve men who, for the most part, would prove to
be valuable companions to Jesus.

knowledge, and instruction for the church that would later grow
and spread.

* Jesus knew that these men would disappoint him, desert him,
deny him, and betray him.

would be the first witnesses of the Gospel, carrying God's
message of redemption to Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the
earth.

* The twelve tribes of Israel were blessed in order to be a
blessing to all nations. In a similar way, these twelve men,
along with all disciples of Jesus who follow their lead, were to
