This is the only passage where Jesus is referred to as an Apostle, though the term is entirely consistent with his life and ministry. Here we see the attributes of an apostle highlighted – appointed by God, faithful, worthy of honour, a builder of God’s house, bearing witness to what has been spoken by God


Key Words



Literally, a messenger, specifically commissioned with a particular message, and carrying the same authority as the one sending the message. They therefore had to be faithful both to the sender (God) and to the message they were appointed to carry.

The Challenge


We are not all apostles but we do all have our own calling that is to do with the message about Jesus.

Talk to your mentor about discovering your own calling in God.
