“He chose twelve.” Most likely this was because there are twelve people of Israel.
We are surprised at the type of guys Jesus decided on for his family. We would suppose that the guy, the boy of goodness, via eden, might have obtained about your as their near and close friends probably the most refined and cultivated guys of his country, boys of cleverness, of trained attention, of large impact. Rather than planning Jerusalem, but to choose their apostles from among rabbis, priests, scribes, and rulers, the guy picked all of them from one of the simple men, largely from among anglers of Galilee. One reason for this is that he must determine these interior family through the team which had been interested in him and had been already their fans, in genuine empathy with him; so there were none of the fantastic, the read, the cultured, among these. But one more reason was, which he cared most for traits of heart compared to position, position, title, worldly effect, or person knowledge. He desired near your only those who getting of the same brain with your, and whom he could teach into devoted, sympathetic apostles.
