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.
