Here’s my sermon from February 4, 2024. I’m going through Robertsons’s harmony of the Gospels and looking at all of the people that Jesus interacted with. This week it’s the disciples that would then become the Apostles.
There are 14 of them, really, if you count Matthias and Paul. The best thing about that is how much more it fits with the 12 – 14 tribes of Israel. If you add Ephraim and Mannasseh on to the tribe of Joseph, that is. Of course that gets more complicated since Dan doesn’t show up in Revelation, but that’s for another day.
