Jesus Appoints the Twelve Disciples

13 Jesus went up on a mountainside. He called for certain people to come to him, and they came. 14 He appointed 12 of them so that they would be with him. He would also send them out to preach. 15 And he gave them authority to drive out demons.

16 So Jesus appointed the 12 disciples.

Simon was one of them. Jesus gave him the name Peter.

17 There were James, son of Zebedee, and his brother John. Jesus gave them the name Boanerges. Boanerges means Sons of Thunder.

18 There were also Andrew,

Philip,

Bartholomew,

Matthew,

Thomas,

and James, son of Alphaeus.

And there were Thaddaeus

and Simon the Zealot.

19 Judas Iscariot was one of them too. He was the one who was later going to hand Jesus over to his enemies.
