THE CHOOSING OF THE TWELVE DISCIPLES AND JESUS TEACHINGS ON TRUE DISCIPLESHIP
Jesus prayed the whole night for God’s guidance and revelation before choosing the 12 disciples. He called his disciples and chose 12. They were to accompany him, teach his word and be witnesses to the Good news.
The 12 disciples were to be witness to the house of Israel and to the rest of the world. Jesus Christ called the twelve disciples ‘Apostles’ meaning one who is sent. From the Greek word Apostles meaning missionaries.
