Bible Discussion Thread

  • Hilda Banks on Matthew 10
    Why in Matthews 10:1 do Jesus say disciples, but in vs. 2 does he call them apostles ... what is the difference and when is one vs the other used.
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Matthew 10
    Hello Hilda,

    I actually looked into this a little while ago to find the difference also. A disciple is a follower or a student of a teacher. Learning. An apostle is when that student goes out and actually teaches others, what they have learned, from their master or teacher.

    Hope that helps. God Bless.
