When Jesus started looking for his twelve Apostles, he didn't look in the Jewish synagogues for the finely dressed, righteous acting scribes and Pharisees. Jesus didn't look for his twelve among the rich rulers and popular public speakers of his day. No, Jesus looked for twelve men who were living and working in the more humble walks of life. Five were fishermen, one was of the despised publicans, and the occupations of the others are not mentioned. All, but Judas, were from Galilee and none of the original twelve received higher education. (Acts 2:7) The Lord often uses some of the most humble and meek brethren to carry out his grand eternal purposes. "...not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called... that no flesh should glory in his presence." (1 Cor. 1:26-29) These twelve men of humble means were chosen to live with and learn from the most magnificent of all God's creation, His only begotten Son! The twelve Apostles of the Lamb became the twelve foundation stones of God's spiritual temple — twelve stones and no others — a firm foundation for the true Church.
