Episode 08 The chosen Disciple

被拣选的门徒 The chosen Disciple

Acts 1:23-26

23于是他们提出两个人:约瑟(号称巴撒巴,又名犹士都)和马提亚,24就祷告说:主啊!你知道万人的心,求你从这两个人中,指明你要拣选谁25来承担这使徒的职位和工作。这职位犹大已经放弃,往他自己的地方去了。26大家就为他们抽签,结果抽中了马提亚,他就与十一使徒同列。

23 So they nominated two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. 24 Then they prayed, “Lord, you know everyone’s heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen 25 to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs.” 26 Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.

Second, it tells us that the qualification of an apostle was that the person must have been with Jesus. The real Christian is the one who lives day by day with Jesus.
