The Role of Society for Integral Human
-The life of the Christian in Jerusalem: A model-
(CLFP)
The birth of the Christian Community (Acts 2:1-13)
The Relationship between Jesus and His Apostles
The call of the apostles is a part of God’s saving
plan and a mystery.
We can never fully understand why, of all people
these twelve men were called by Jesus, just as we can
never fully understand why God created each one of
us. (It is only God can answer that)
The birth of the Christian Community (Acts 2:1-13)
How Jesus and his Apostles Differ from Usual Rabbi
During the time of Jesus, it was customary for a rabbi or a
teacher to have disciples who follow and study under him. Jesus
was like a rabbi to the twelve apostles but their relationship
differed from the usual rabbi-student relationship in the
following ways:
1. It was Jesus who chose and called His disciples. It was not
you who chose me, but I who chose you” (John 15:16).
2. Jesus called His apostles to a lasting personal
relationship with him. ”He said to Levi, “Follow me” (Luke
5:27). I have called you friends” John 15:15). - (Most
rabbis kept their students only to teach them. When the
studies were completed, most of the students and teachers
no longer maintain contact with one another.
3. The disciples were called not for their benefit only. In the
Gospel of John. It is clear that Jesus called the twelve so
they would “go and bear fruit” (John 15:16). (In short,
the Apostles were called to work for the Kingdom that Jesus
started).

The Relationship between Jesus and His Apostles
The apostles were a major part of Jesus’ministry.
Jesus sent them on a mission to proclaim His Good News
of the Kingdom.
He empowered them to teach, heal, and cast out devils
(Matthew 10:1).
But the Apostle realized their full mission
Jesus’resurrection, when they received the Holy Spirit
on Pentecost day. These great events brought the
Apostles.
However, the apostles mission was never exclusive to
them. All of us Christians, by virtue of our Baptism,
are “missioned” to follow in the footsteps of the
apostles and spread Jesus’message of salvation.
Like the apostles, we are empowered by the Holy Spirit
to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.
