MEET THE APOSTLES – MATTHEW AND JAMES, BROTHER OF JOHN

Marty Redding will continue our study of the Twelve Apostles as we learn about Matthew and James, brother of John. Matthew was a dishonest tax collector driven by greed until Jesus chose him as a disciple. On the day that Jesus called him he threw a farewell feast and invited all his friends to meet Jesus. From that time forward instead of collecting taxes he collected souls for Christ. James was the brother of John and was part of the “circle of honor” with Peter and John. James was an eyewitness to the Transfiguration. He was a fisherman, known as a ruffian with a temper. Come and discuss how Matthew, a corrupt tax collector, and James, a fisherman and ruffian, became apostles and served Jesus among the Twelve.
