1 Definitions: Disciple Greek mathetes a learner, one who follows both the teaching and the Teacher Apostle Greek apostolos ambassador of the Gospel, messenger, he that is sent, messenger Quote: Jesus did not choose these 12 to be His associates and companions because of their faith; their faith often faltered. He didn t choose them because of their talent and ability; no one stood out with unusual ability. The disciples represented a wide range of backgrounds and life experiences, but apparently they ad no more leadership potential than those who were not chosen. The one characteristic they all shared was their willingness to obey Jesus. After Jesus ascension, they were filled with the Holy Spirit and empowered to carry out special roles in the growth of the early church being a good disciple is simply a matter of following Jesus with a willing heart. (Life 1675) About the Disciples (Life ): Peter impulsive, bold wrote 1 and 2 Peter. Lesson: Christians falter at times, but when they return to Jesus, He forgives them and strengthens their faith. James, son of Zebedee ambitious, judgmental first disciple to be martyred. Lesson: Christians must be willing to die for Jesus. John, son of Zebedee ambitious, judgmental wrote John, 1-3 John, and Revelations. Would take care of Jesus mother. Lesson: The transforming power of the love of Christ is available to all. Andrew, Peter s brother eager to bring others to Jesus. Lesson: Christians are to tell other people about Jesus. Philip questioning. Lesson: God uses our questions to teach us. Bartholomew (AKA Nathanael) honesty and straightforward. Lesson: Jesus respects honesty in people, even if they challenge Him because of it. Matthew (AKA Levi) despised outcast wrote Matthew. Lesson: Christianity is not for people who they are already good but for people who know they ve failed and want help. Thomas courage and doubt. Lesson: Even when Christians experience serious doubts, Jesus reaches out to them to restore their faith. James, son of Alphaeus. Lesson: Unknown. Thaddaeus (AKA Judas son of James). Lesson: Christians follow Jesus because they believe in Him; they do not always understand the details of God s plan. Simon (AKA Zealot) patriot. Lesson: If we are willing to give up our plans for the future, we can participate in Jesus plans. Judas Iscariot treacherous and greedy. Lesson: Jesus true followers love and obey Him. The deaths of the 12 apostles: Judas Iscariot hanged himself (Matt 27:5) James, son of Zebedee killed by a sword (Acts 12:2) Peter crucified in Rome, head downward Andrew on a cross at Patrae James thrown from a pinnacle of the temple and then beaten to death

Who are Jesus disciples? (Matt 10:2-4; Mark 3:16-19; Luke 5:14-16) The list of Jesus 12 disciples doesn t give us many details probably because there weren t many impressive details to tell God can use anyone, no matter how insignificant he or she appears.
