2-7-2017 Apostles Of Jesus

After His resurrection, but before His ascension into Heaven, Jesus “through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God” (Acts 1:2-3 NKJV). 1) The Twelve Apostles were personally chosen by Jesus (Matthew 10:1-4).  2) Only Judas Iscariot was replaced when he committed suicide (Acts 1:15-26).  Herod killed James, but he was not replaced (Acts 12:1-2).  3) The Apostles were eye-witnesses of the resurrected Jesus.  4) These were “infallible proofs,” or evidence with certainty.  “Infallible” only referred to Gospel evidence, never to an Apostle! Faith is without doubt!
