Mark 3:13-19. The appointing of the twelve apostles.

The way Christ chose the apostles who would revolutionise the world. Not looking at the men as we would look at them, but the way Christ in his infinite wisdom and insight chose men from such different backgrounds, backgrounds that were a volatile mix of characters, personalities and passionate beliefs. But Christ brought them together in such a way that they were unified in turning the world upside down.

Marc continues in his series on Mark (Baptismal Service).
