Posted by eThought on

Luke 6:12-16 says:

12At that time Jesus went out to a mountain to pray. He stayed there all night praying to God. 13The next morning, Jesus called his followers. He chose twelve of them. He named these men "apostles."* They were: 14Simon (Jesus named him Peter) and Andrew, Peter's brother; James and John, Philip and Bartholomew;15Matthew, Thomas, James (the son of Alphaeus), and Simon (called the Zealot*),16Judas (the son of James) and Judas Iscariot. This Judas was the one that gave Jesus to his enemies.  (Easy-to-Read Version)

King James Version:

12And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.  13And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles; 14Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, 15Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes, 16And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.
