    Written by a believer, but properly skeptical about the legends that sprang up, the book goes through each of the Twelve and then wraps up with a discussion of five other notable apostles: John Mark, Barnabas, Luke, Lazarus, and Paul. Lives of the 12 apostles book parallels the accounts of Mark and Luke, but Matthew implies that the men have also abandoned their father since he is present in the boat they abandon behind themand Carter feels this should be interpreted to mean that Matthew's view of Jesus is one of a figure rejecting the traditional patriarchal structure of society, where the father had command over his children; most scholars, however, just interpret it to mean that Matthew intended these two to be seen as even more devoted than the other pair,[ citation needed ] or that Jesus expected the imminent coming of the kingdom. Ruffin examines the status and motives of Judas and what made him a traitor to Christ. His death is recorded in Acts, and took place in 41 A.

I initially had qualms about this book.

Bartholomew was naturally surprised that Jesus seemed to know him, but his surprise turned to amazement when Jesus informed him that he had seen him sitting under the fig tree just a few minutes earlier, something Jesus could not have known by any natural means. This ecclesiastical meaning of the word was later translated into Latin as missiothe source of the English " missionary ". Either way, he was open-minded enough to go and see for himself. It was vital and alive and fully capable of applying the timeless principles of God to a changing world. Their Judas is simultaneously an object of condemnation and also illumination.
