The Choice of the Twelve Apostles ►
And He went up on the mountain and summoned those whom He Himself wanted, and they came to Him. 14
And He appointed twelve, so that they would be with Him and that He could
send them out to preach, 15
and to have authority to cast out the demons. 16
And He appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom He gave the name Peter), 17
and James, the son
of Zebedee, and John the brother of James (to them He gave the name Boanerges, which means, Sons of Thunder); 18
and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Zealot; 19
and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Him.
It was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God. 13
And when day came, He called His disciples to Him and chose twelve of them, whom He also named as apostles: 14
Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; and James and John; and Philip and Bartholomew; 15
and Matthew and Thomas; James the son
of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot; 16
Judas the son
of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
