According to our Religious Studies teacher in his continuing mission to make sure we realised that Christianity was dull, boring and irrelevant, that was an answer given by one of his pupils as to who the Apostles were.
The Bible tells us that Jesus chose 12 Apostles:
And He called to Him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Him. (Matt 10:1-4)
And He went up on the mountain and called to Him those whom He desired, and they came to Him. And He appointed twelve (whom he also named apostles) so that they might be with Him and He might send them out to preach and have authority to cast out demons. He appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter); James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder); Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Him. (Mark 3:13-19)
And when day came, He called His disciples and chose from them twelve, whom He named apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. (Luke 6:13-16)
Today is St Bartholomew's Day, and to be honest, we don't know much about him. The Bible doesn't go into much detail.
But the important thing is that he knew God and was known by God. Does it matter how posterity remembers us, as long as we know that our salvation is secure in trusting in Jesus Christ and His work on the Cross?
