Discussion for Luke 6:12

  • Ronald Brady on Luke 6:12
    Did Jesus select his disciples prior to his all night pray with God on the mountainside or had He chosen them and was praying for God's devine blessing? Does the bible describe anywhere any of Jesus' requests of God or only that He was seeking His blessing and loved communicating with his Father?
