I think you've got that backwards, little elmer. A disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ. Christ had many disciples; we are His disciples today. We are not his Apostles.

Of those Sheila mentioned, not all were specifically refered to as Apostles. Obviously, we can all agree that the original twelve were. They were:

1. Peter
2. Andrew
3. James the son of Zebedee
4. John
5. Philip
6. Bartholomew
7. Thomas
8. Matthew
9. James the son of Alphaeus
10. Thaddaeus
11. Simon the Zealot
12. Judas Iscariot

Matthias replaced Judas Iscariot. Paul was also named as an Apostle, as was Barnabas, and James (the Lord's brother).

Andronicus, Junias, Silas, Timothy, and Epaphroditus, unless I'm mistaken, were never referred to as Apostles. The seventy were not Apostles, either. Other "unnamed apostles" were certainly a possibility, as initially, vacancies within the group were always filled.

A disciple is a student and an apostles is sent forth to tell others (teach what they have learned)
They are students/disciples taught by the holy spirit and then sent forth as apostles. Check the Bible references--the ones I posted ARE listed as apostles except for the seventy who were sent forth to spread the word that God taught them and where it says other apostles in the Bible (without saying names)

There was an inner 12. In Acts 1:26 we read that Matthias was chosen as a replacement for Judas, bringing the total back to 12.

There were many more that were around and followed Jesus, but were not part of the 12.

Where do you get barny was????

Never thought James the brother was an apostle..... can you help me with that?

Phl 2:25
But I thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, who is also your fnmessenger and minister to my need;


makes Epaph an apostle... that's a supposition.
