On one of those days, Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray. He spent the night praying to God.
When morning came, he called for his disciples to come to him. He chose 12 of them and made them apostles.
Simon was one of them. Jesus gave him the name Peter. There were also Simon's brother Andrew, James, John, Philip and Bartholomew.
And there were Matthew, Thomas, and James, son of Alphaeus. There were also Simon who was called the Zealot
and Judas, son of James. Judas Iscariot was one of them too. He was the one who would later hand Jesus over to his enemies.
