Character Studies: The Apostles

Studies into the lives of the Twelve

 

The Apostles: An Introduction

January 23, 2023

Who were these men that turned the known world upside-down with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ?
What image comes to mind when you hear the words, “Apostle of Jesus?”
The men that we associate with the term “apostle” were a group of Jewish men who had had an encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ, and they would never be the same.
Jesus Christ selected 12 disciples from among his early followers to pour out His heart and teachings into. After an intensive 3-year discipleship course, Christ died. Following his resurrection from the dead, the Lord fully commissioned them as apostles (Matthew 28:16-2, Mark 16:15) to advance God's kingdom and carry the gospel message to the world.

General Accomplishments During Jesus Ministry

January 23, 2023

In this study, we will do an in-depth analysis of each of the Apostles. However, there is a lot of information about some of the Apostles and very little about others. That will not hinder us in our study. We should look at the work of the Apostles as a whole, when called as the "Twelve." Even though an Apostle is not named, we can draw a picture of each of them by what they accomplished together.
