THE APOSTLES OF JESUS CHRIST: THIRTEEN MEN WHO TURNED THE WORLD UPSIDE-DOWN
THE RABBI JESUS of Nazareth chose twelve men to form his own itinerant minyan to travel with him wherever he went throughout his earthly ministry. A “minyan” is the number of adult Jews required to form a synagogue or to conduct Hebrew worship as a congregation. Today the quorum is ten. Originally the number was twelve—the same number of the original twelve tribes of Israel. This book provides new materials based upon historical research/analysis and an examination of the sociological, interpersonal, and group dynamics of this amazing group of Jesus’s apostles. The Appendices include a unique Minyan Sociogram, maps, and a new Reader’s Guide that offers additional resources for the reader. A Leader’s Manual with a DVD is also available for leaders of youth and adult Bible Study groups and church Sunday School classes. “Dr. C. David Jones has given us a marvelous and expansive piece of Research work and writing in this book in which he tells the fascinating story of the original twelve men and then the thirteen men who joined them to form a very special minyan: their lives changed the world!”—from the Introduction to the book by Dr. Maxie D. Dunnam, past President and current Provost of Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky. Cover illustration by Tim Baron
