Bible: Acts 1:21-26

1:21 Thus one of the men 1  who have accompanied us during all the time the Lord Jesus associated with 2  us, 1:22 beginning from his baptism by John until the day he 3  was taken up from us – one of these must become a witness of his resurrection together with us.” 1:23 So they 4  proposed two candidates: 5  Joseph called Barsabbas (also called Justus) and Matthias. 1:24 Then they prayed, 6 Lord, you know the hearts of all. Show us which one of these two you have chosen 1:25 to assume the task 7  of this service 8  and apostleship from which Judas turned aside 9  to go to his own place.” 10  1:26 Then 11  they cast lots for them, and the one chosen was Matthias; 12  so he was counted with the eleven apostles. 13
