Bible: Luke 6:12-19
Choosing the Twelve Apostles
6:12 Now 1 it was during this time that Jesus 2 went out to the mountain 3 to pray, and he spent all night 4 in prayer to God. 5 6:13 When 6 morning came, he called his disciples and chose twelve of them, whom he also named apostles: 7 6:14 Simon 8 (whom he named Peter), and his brother Andrew; and James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, 9 6:15 Matthew, Thomas, 10 James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called the Zealot, 11 6:16 Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, 12 who became a traitor.
The Sermon on the Plain
6:17 Then 13 he came down with them and stood on a level place. 14 And a large number 15 of his disciples had gathered 16 along with 17 a vast multitude from all over Judea, from 18 Jerusalem, 19 and from the seacoast of Tyre 20 and Sidon. 21 They came to hear him and to be healed 22 of their diseases, 6:18 and those who suffered from 23 unclean 24 spirits were cured. 6:19 The 25 whole crowd was trying to touch him, because power 26 was coming out from him and healing them all.
