Luke 6v12-16 - The choosing of the apostles

Adobe Acrobat

God's kingdom is always going forward – even when it looks like it is going backwards! Christians discover that. Following Jesus brings trouble and problems; but God achieves his plans through it. At this time, Jesus was hated and rejected by the Pharisees and teachers of the law. They had begun to plot to destroy him (v11). But at this time, Jesus was planning for the kingdom to go forward. He was choosing his apostles. Some disciples were already following him all the time (e.g. Peter, Luke 5:10). Now he chose some who would have a special position.
