This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – The Apostles of Jesus – James the Greater. 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.
James the son of Zebedee, often called James the Greater to distinguish him from the other apostle named James, was a member of Jesus Christ's inner circle, which included his brother, the John and Peter. Not only did James and John earn a special nickname from the Lord -"sons of thunder” - they were privileged to be at the front and center of 3 supernatural events in the life of Christ.
James' zeal for Jesus resulted in his being the first of the 12 apostles to be martyred. He was killed with the sword on order of King Herod Agrippa I of Judea, by being beheaded about 44 AD, in a general persecution of the early church. The event is referenced in Acts 12:1-2 and occurred the day before Passover in Judea. It is ironic that King Herod died 5 days later.
