12 Apostles

12 Apostles vs. Disciples

You can take a Bible Quiz about the Bible and the Apostles after reading this section.

A disciple is one who follows Jesus and His teachings. The definition of an Apostle is "One Sent Forth". An Apostle is a special witness of Jesus Christ - one who especially witnesses of His divinity (that He is a deity) and that He was resurrected from the dead.

From among His disciples, Jesus chose 12 Apostles Luke 6:13, John 15:16.

When a vacancy in the twelve Apostles occurred because of the betrayal, then subsequent death of Judas Iscariot, Matthias was appointed by inspiration to that special office of Apostle Acts 1:15-26.

At the present time, 12 men with this same calling from God make up the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

They lead and guide Christ's church today just like the 12 apostles of old guided the ancient church.
