Jesus chooses his twelve Disciples
Matthew 4:11-22 John 1:40-57

Jesus chose twelve men to help him in his work. They were neither rich nor learned. They were simple folk. But they were ever ready to do whatever Jesus told them to do.

One day Jesus was walking by the lake of Galilee. He saw two brothers Andrew and Simon Peter at their work of fishing. Jesus said to them "Follow me, I will make you fishers of men". At once they left their nets and followed him. As they went on further, Jesus saw two other brothers, James and John. They were with their father Zebedee mending their nets. Jesus called them. At once they left their boat and their father and followed him.

One day Jesus on his way to Galilee saw Philip and told him to follow him. Philip brought Nathaneal to Jesus. He also became his disciple. Jesus also took as his disciple one Mathew who was a tax collector. In course of time, Jesus had twelve disciples. They were Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew (Nathaneal), Mathew, Thomas, James (son of Alphaeus), Simon, Thaddaeus and Judas Iscariot (who betrayed Jesus). The twelve men were called 'apostles' (meaning people who are sent with a message). These twelve disciples went with Jesus everywhere. Jesus was their teacher and master. He taught them many things and explained why God, his Father had sent him to this world.
