This might have been asked before so I will expand the question a little bit. (Mind you, as a pastor's daughter I could only remember 8 of them.) In any case, the 12 names are? And what was their occupation before full time ministry? And how about: Can you name them in the order Jesus called them? Lastly, were any of them married? Hehehee, I guess I really expanded the question.

I could name the 12 tribes easier than the 12 disciples...ok well maybe not all of them but more anyway beause I have friends on a mission to name there sons after the tribes. The have Asher and Judah so far, Benjamin is next if they have another one...we're all just hoping they never get to Gad! Disciples...I really do know some of these but am going to cheat anyway... Simon (called Peter and was married) and his brother Andrew and James and John (also brothers) were fishermen,. He ordained them in this order: Simon, James, John, Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew. Matthew, Thomas, another James, Thaddaeus, Simon, Judad Iscariot...Timothy I believe came later as the replacement for Judas.

Wow! That's pretty awesome. Don't forget Matthew worked for the IRS (tax collector). Was it Timothy that replaced Judas? Really, I don't think I knew that. Thanks Foxy. Oh by the way. Your friends are planning to have 12 sons??? My, my. Gad is such a cute name, lol. In any case, your input is much appreciated. I'm impressed. Have a wonderful and most awesome Tuesday afternoon.

I think Timothy was the replacement, I seem to remember hearing that somewhere. My friends have 5 children so far and are saying they're done for now. He came from a family of 14 or so kids and intended on having a big family...his wife has decided that 5 in 8 years is enough! Bt yes, the original plan was to have as many as they were blessed with, with the boys being named after the tribes.

Oh I know what you mean. For me, I always forget Bartholomew. Not to worry, Mari, you are not alone. But it makes me wonder why we can't remember these guys. After all, they changed the world and made history. I guess we need to study more. Thanks for stopping by--have a beautiful Thursday.

The 12 are as follows: Simon (who was called Peter) his brother Andrew, the sons of Zebedee (thunder)James and John,Philip, Bartholomew, Thomus, Mathew (the tax collecter as you have pointed out, James the son of Alfaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon (the zelot) and Judas Iscariot (the assain): Thaddaeus was also known as "Judas son of James, luke 6:16, and Lebaeus in Mathew 10:3. In Mark 3;18 Simon is also known as Simon the Canaanite, But Judas was replaced by Mathias, see acts 1:20-26. Some though say it was Paul who was the 12th appostel takeing Judas's place. The origenal Decipels were made up of Ten fishermen, One tax collector and one revolutionary.

Very nice. I do believe you got them all. And I did check on who replaced Judas and it looks like you are right. It's Matthias. Thanks, my friend. Sounds like you're quite the revolutionary yourself. Have a wonderful, and peaceful, Thursday morning.

Let's see Sleepy, Dopey, Sneezy, Doc, Grumpy, Happy and Bashful. They were miners I think and they whistled a lot.

Okay then, not a good day for serious questions. Just in case you don't know, these are Walt's disciples not Jesus'. Oh bother! LOL, but not too loud. Ah, it's good to laugh. Thanks for your input, not quite what I was looking for, but you're appreciated anyhow. Many blessings on this fine Tuesday.
