We hope you enjoy this resource and return in the future to check out others.

This Study:

Jesus did not do his ministry alone. He carefully selected twelve individuals to aid in his kingdom work. The diversity of these twelve can teach us a lot about Jesus and ourselves. Enjoy this introspective Bible study on the twelve Apostles of Christ, guided by the book The First to Follow: The Apostles of Jesus by Rev. John Claypool.
