The Triumphs of the Twelve

by Miriam Ahm

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
After the resurrected Christ gave them the commission to, "teach and baptize all nations", the Twelve did so remarkably (Matthias replacing Judas Iscariot). This book illuminates not only where they served and preached, but also reveals some of their tremendous and miraculous triumphs. The special individual relationship that each Apostle had with the Master is conveyed, and how each one earned their martyr's crown. The information about these and many other questions are revealed: • How could Judas Iscariot love Jesus and yet betray him? • How important were women in the work of the Lord? • What was the name of the Roman centurion at the cross? • What might have the apostles looked like? • How did each apostle die?
Most of the main reference sources for this book come from the pages of four books. Two of the books are Bibles, and the rest are also religious. 1. The "Standard" Edition of The Holy Bible: Containing the King James and the Revised Versions of the Old and New Testaments Arranged in Parallel Columns, commonly referred to as the Parallel Bible of 1884. More is explained about this on the following pages. 2. The other bible is a contemporary King James version of The Holy Bible from 1801 described as follows: "Translated out of the original tongues and with the former translations diligently compared and revised. The text conformable to that of the edition of 1611, commonly known as the Authorized or King James Version." 3. The third book is the Life of Christ by John Fleetwood, D.D., from 1866. 4. The fourth book is The Search for the Twelve Apostles by William Steuart McBirnie. In this work, these four books are coordinated with various other historical and apocryphal sources. This information is noted as it appears in the end notes. The many ponderous, scholarly facts are edited into a more reader-friendly format for our time. Many of the facts cited and the illustrations are from the Parallel Bible of 1884. An excerpt from its preface follows this introduction that explains how the work originated and the many sources of information used. From this valuable Parallel Bible, edited biographies of each Apostle are presented. Also included are many facts from The Search for the Twelve Apostles. For some of the Apostles, commentaries are also included that were gleaned from the Life of Christ about any New Testament text that is written by that particular Apostle. Since James the Just organized the first and chief Church, a list of interesting information about the Church in Jerusalem is included in his biography. For John's book of Revelation, in addition to the commentary, a chart is also included that simplifies and links the seven seals of the earth's events to their specific chapters and verses.
