He appointed twelve that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
Discipleship in the Gospels was a relational process where Jesus chose 12 to be ‘with him’. After he left the earth, even those who opposed Christ recognized the disciples as having been with Jesus.They sounded like him, they taught like him and they worked like him. They learned to do what he did. The ‘Being with’ strategy meant guiding and accompanying others in real life.
