Q: Who were the first five?

A: Andrew, Simon Peter, Philip, Nathanael, and probably the author of John became Jesus’ disciples, recognizing him as the promised Messiah.


Can you name all 12 disciples? Read two or three passages each day and make a list of their names, additional information you learn about them, and what Jesus said to them.


Matthew 9:9–13; 10:1–4

Mark 1:16–20; 2:13–17; 3:13–19

Luke 6:12–16; 9:1–5


What have you learned about what it means to be a disciple and follow Jesus from these passages? What can you apply to your life?
