This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – The Apostles of Jesus – Simon the Zealot. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
We find the names of the 12 apostles of Jesus the Christ in: Matthew 10:2-4, Mark 3:14-19 and Luke 6:13-16. “And when day came, he called his disciples and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas [also called Thaddeus or Jude] the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.” (ESV)
Each of these men sacrificed everything to follow the Lord. In Luke 18:28, their spokesman Peter said, "We have left all we had to follow you!" (NIV) They gave up family, friends, homes, jobs, and all things familiar to answer Christ's call. They formed the foundation of the Christian church, initiating a movement that steadily spread across the face of the earth.
Who doesn't like a good mystery? One of those puzzling questions is the exact identity of Simon the Zealot, the Bible's own mystery apostle. Scripture tells us almost nothing about Simon. In the Gospels, he is mentioned in 3 places, but only to list his name. In Acts 1:13 we learn that he was present with the apostles in the upper room of Jerusalem after Christ had ascended to heaven.
Beyond those few details, we can only speculate about Simon and his designation as a Zealot. Church tradition holds that he spread the gospel in Egypt as a missionary and was martyred in Persia by being sawed in half. He died the same day as Judas Thaddeus whom many believe they were both brothers.
