13 Afterward Jesus went up on a mountain and called out the ones he wanted to go with him. And they came to him.14 Then he appointed twelve of them and called them his apostles.[a] They were to accompany him, and he would send them out to preach,15 giving them authority to cast out demons.16 These are the twelve he chose:
Simon (whom he named Peter), 17 James and John (the sons of Zebedee, but Jesus nicknamed them “Sons of Thunder”[b]), 18 Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James (son of Alphaeus), Thaddaeus, Simon (the zealot[c]), 19 Judas Iscariot (who later betrayed him).
Jesus and the Prince of Demons
20 One time Jesus entered a house, and the crowds began to gather again. Soon he and his disciples couldn’t even find time to eat.21 When his family heard what was happening, they tried to take him away. “He’s out of his mind,” they said.
3:14Some manuscripts do not include and called them his apostles.
3:17Greek whom he named Boanerges, which means Sons of Thunder.
3:18Greek the Cananean, an Aramaic term for Jewish nationalists.
