Jesus’s Disciples

Peter: He was a fisherman from Capernaum (John says Bethsaida). He’s also often called Simon, Simon Peter, or Cephas. (Cephas comes from the Aramaic for “rock,” and Peter comes from the Greek equivalent for the same.)

Andrew: He was Peter’s brother and fishing partner; John’s gospel says that Andrew was first a disciple of John the Baptist.

James: He was son of Zebedee and a fisherman from Capernaum. He’s called “James the Great” in later tradition.

John: He was James’s brother and partner in the family fishing business. And maybe because they’re so brazen, in Mark, Jesus gives the two brothers the name Boanerges, which is a Greek form of the Aramaic “sons of thunder” (Mark 10:35–45).

Philip: He was from Bethsaida, another town on the coast of the Sea of Galilee.

Bartholomew: This member of the Twelve doesn’t get a lot of press. There simply aren’t any stories about him apart from the list of the Twelve. Since the ninth century CE, some people have wondered if he’s the Nathanael mentioned in John 1:45–51 and 21:2. Why? Because Nathanael is a normal first name and Bartholomew was more likely a surname (the Greek is based on the Aramaic Bar-Talmai, which means “son of Talmai”).

Matthew: He’s called a toll collector in Matthew’s gospel. This reference solves the problem in Mark that the toll collector Levi is called (Mark 2:13–17), but never listed among the Twelve (Mark 3:13–19).

Thomas: Thomas, or “twin” in Aramaic, is called “doubting Thomas” because he doubted Jesus’s resurrection until he could touch Jesus’s wounds himself (John 20:24–29). He’s also called Didymus Thomas (which is like saying “twin” twice in both Greek and Aramaic).

James: This man, who was the son of Alphaeus, was called in later tradition “James the Less” — not to be confused with James the Great or James brother of Jesus (James was obviously a popular name at the time!).

Simon: He was called “the Cananean” (which means “zealous” or “jealous” in Aramaic) in Matthew and Mark and “the Zealot” (the Greek equivalent of the same) in Luke.

Thaddeus: There’s a bit of controversy when it comes to this 11th disciple. In Mark and Matthew, he’s called Thaddeus. Luke, on the other hand, calls this man Jude, son of James.

Judas Iscariot: He’s the one who betrayed Jesus to the authorities (so he’s always put last on lists of the Twelve!).

Ten Commandments

1 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.

2 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments.

3 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

4 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

5 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

6 “You shall not murder.

7 “You shall not commit adultery.

8 “You shall not steal.

9 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.

10 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbour’s.”
