Dear parents and other readers, I have a confession to make. I was a terrible student through junior high and much of high school. Not terrible grade-wise. My grades were actually decent. Certainly I was not a poorly behaved student although bad jokes were part of my nature even way back then.
No, I was pretty terrible because I could skate. And skate I did. Until Miss Colby.
Which are you? Which do you want your kids to be?
In the adult Bible class I lead we were looking at the three Gospel accounts listing the twelve disciples. What a ragtag group!
One of the interesting components of the gospel accounts is the use of the categories disciples and apostles. In Luke it talks about Jesus selecting twelve from among the many disciples and how he only called those his apostles. So while the terms seem interchangeable they apparently were not.
