learning the 12 Disciples - Simon Peter, Andrew his brother, James and John, the sons of thunder, Philip and Bartholomew, And lest you doubt it, Thomas, too. James the son of Alphaeus, Matthew used to make us nervous. Lebbaeus, or Thaddeus, or Judas son of James, (He might have other names!) Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, betrayer of the Lord. These were the twelve Apostles.
...whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls. [1 Peter 1:8-9]
Against The Wind By Liz Lemon Swindle Two thousand years later, Christ is still calling to us.
