WALA – Jesus and his 12 Disciples


Today we are going to learn about how Jesus chose some of his Disciples (they were also known as his apostles), people who believed in Jesus and felt a strong bond with him and his beliefs. Begin the lesson by watching the clip and noting down the names of the 12 disciples. The video tells us how the bible told readers how he met some of them.


Also, look through the PowerPoint in resources (or the PDF version if your don't have PowerPoint) which tells you the names of the disciples and how Jesus met them according to the bible.


Challenge 1. Pick two of the disciples and draw them accurately. Using what you have learnt in this lesson, or using guided Internet research can you write a paragraph explaining who they were and how they met Jesus?

Challenge 2. Can you match up the disciples with their descriptions in the resources. Hint: you will know some, but you may have to do some research to match up others.


Challenge 3. Complete challenge 1 or 2. Then consider what Jesus’ choice of disciples tell you about attitudes towards women back in these times (over 2000 years ago)? Why do you think there were just male disciples? Write a few sentences explaining your thoughts on this.
