THE FIRST DISCIPLES OF JESUS

We've only scratched the surface in learning about the miracles that Jesus worked while He was on earth. In healing the sick, He fulfilled the prophecy that Isaiah spoke of in Isaiah 53:4, He took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses.

There was even a time when Jesus instructed His disciples to have a small ship awaiting Him because the crowds were so heaven and they might throng Him. He healed so many that those who had diseases pressed upon Him to touch Him so they could be healed. Unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried, You are the Son of God. He seriously ordered them not to make Him known.

THE FIRST DISCIPLES OF JESUS STUDY ON THE FIRST DISCIPLES OF JESUS STORY WITH THE FIRST DISCIPLES OF JESUS MESSAGE

Here is an interesting little story for you. A scribe came and said to Jesus, Master, I'll follow you wherever you go. Jesus said to him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has no place to lay His head.

Now wait just a minute here, you may be thinking ... Jesus was homeless? Absolutely right. During the time of His ministry for 3 1/2 years, He had no "home." Think about that the next time you see a homeless person. The Apostles who followed Jesus, they also left their homes and families. Yep, the Apostles were homeless too.

One of Jesus' disciples said to Him, (in reference to following Him) Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said to him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead, but you go and preach the Kingdom of God.

Before we look into what Jesus responded ...

Disciples ... What are Disciples?

Disciples are those who follow and/or serve another.

Who were the FIRST disciples of Jesus?

LIST OF THE FIRST DISCIPLES OF JESUS

Matthew 10:2-4
Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.

These disciples became Apostles.

But, there were MANY more disciples of Jesus at that time and the number has been growing from that time till this very moment.

YOU may be a disciple of Jesus.


Why do you suppose He said this? Well, first of all, if the deceased was righteous, their spirit is back with God, their soul is in Abraham's Bosom and their body as we learned way back in the book of Genesis, will turn back into dust. (If you would like to study what happens after death further, see
FEAR OF DEATH
.) The time that is spent in mourning, could be better spent serving the Lord instead. REJOICE, that the souls are home.

Jesus said to another disciple, Follow me, and the disciple said, Lord, I'll follow you but first let me go say goodbye to my family. Jesus answered, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God. If you have put your hand to the plough, you have started working on something, or set your mind to something. Jesus meant that if you have passion for the Lord, you can't put other things above it or you're not worthy of His Kingdom. How many times has He asked us to follow Him, and we've found other things more important? Priorities are very important. This may be a good time to evaluate the priorities in your life.

When Jesus saw crowds of people around Him, He went into a ship with His disciples and told them to go to the other side of the sea of Galilee. A great tempest came up in the sea and the ship was tossed about by the waves, but Jesus had fallen asleep. The disciples came to Him and woke Him up saying, Lord, save us or we'll die! Jesus said, Why are you afraid, O ye of little faith? He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. The disciples were surprised and they asked each other, What kind of man is He? Even the winds and the sea obey Him!

THE FIRST DISCIPLES OF JESUS WERE THE FIRST SOULS JESUS CHOSE TO FOLLOW HIM. THE FIRST DISCIPLES OF JESUS CONTINUED TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL WHEN JESUS RETURNED TO HEAVEN.
