Bartholomew is alternately identified as Nathaniel in the Bible and Thaddaeus is alternately identified as Lebbaeus or Jude. It took me a minute to figure out which name you wanted.

Nathan was an Old Testament prophet, King David's prophet. Nathanael (the biblical spelling is almost always rendered with an "a" rather than an "i") was the disciple in John, who may or may not be Bartholomew the apostle.

B1Bomber is completely right. Peter is simply the name given to Simon by Jesus at Caesarea Phillipi (spelling?). "I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it," Matthew 16:18. In order to make this quiz clearer, Simon should fill two answers, distinguished by "Simon, called Peter," and "Simon the Zealot." Thanks!

These are disciples, not apostles. They became apostles after Jesus died, minus Judas. Then others joined them and were also included as apostles.

The name of the quiz ought to be changed to Jesus' Entourage... or maybe.. Jesus' Big Group of Men He Hung Out With All The Time And Told To Abandon Their Wives and Follow Him (But Totally Not in a Gay Way!)

An apostle was a person who had seen Jesus and could perform miraculous works through his name for the purpose of spreading the Gospel;therefore Paul is an apostle. The name should say "Twelve Dsciples of Jesus" and not apostles.

You're right. Nobody has ever changed their mind about religion. That's why there are exactly the same number of atheists, Catholics, Lutherans, Orthodox Christians, Baptists, Methodists, Anglicans, Sunnis, Shias, Druze, Sufis, Buddhist, Hindus, Shintoists and so on as there was at the dawn of time.

True. I'm a Christian, and nobody is going to change my relationship with Jesus against my will. I'm very strong-headed when it comes to this kinda stuff. If anyone offends me, I'll just break out quoting Scripture and stuff until they, A) take back their comment, or B) say sorry and leave me alone

I guess you missed the sarcasm. MANY people are capable of changing their minds about religion. I did. As did countless others. If this were not so, then there would be no religion, because how would it spread without the possibility of conversion?

Religion is a big part of my life. I'm the daughter of a preacher, so growing up Christian is the only way I know how to grow up. I go to church every single Sunday both morning and night. I go on Wednesdays during the school year. I do a lot of events with my youth group. I do small groups. I do devotions. I read my bible, take prayer requests, pray, and recite the Lord's prayer and partake in communion. Growing up Christian and living in a Christian manner is the only way I know how.

Not 100% sure, but I thought that they were called disciples until Jesus' death and apostles after receiving the 'gift of tongues'. This means that Judas, although a disciple was not an apostle.

I mostly agree with the naysayers concerning the "righteous" Christians, but not about the accuracy of the Bible. I am a firm believer in the adage: "judge not that ye not be judged" so I keep my opinions about other people's piety to myself. I suggest some of the frequent commenters on these religious sites do the same.

Placing the word "disciples" next to "apostles" is a bit misleading, though it shouldn't hinder one's performance on the quiz The 12 were not Jesus' only disciples, they were his only apostles. Every apostle (each of the 12) is a disciple, but not every disciple is an apostle.

There's a reason that the Bible is divided into the Old Testament (The Hebrew Scriptures) and the New Testament (The Greek Scriptures). The Old Testament describes all the horrific incidents commented on by previous posters (and more) while the New Testament focuses on how it is all going to be avenged.

... And it is going to be "avenged" by God sending his son down to Earth for 33 years, subsequently subjecting him to three days' worth of the most horrific torture imaginable for something that he didn't do, and letting people off for all their wrongdoings if they just believe in Jesus... Totally an improvement on the Old Testament.

The New Testament is not about "avenging" anything. Redemption is the word you're looking for.

He is also referred to in the gospels by the name Jude or Judas (not Iscariot).
