This study shows the characteristics and temperaments of each disciple. They represented the 'raw material' from which Jesus would fashion disciples who would become apostles. Indeed, God chooses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. As you read, you will be encouraged that even the twelve disciples faced the same doubts, fears and misconceptions that plague believers today. Patiently, Jesus nurtures the spiritual potential that is within each one of us. He still continues to choose very ordinary people!
