Jump to: navigation, search

In Luke 10, Jesus sends out seventy disciples to prepare the way before Jesus as He was going from Galilee to Jerusalem. Although the Scriptures never name them, Church tradition has given them names. Many of the names are mentioned in the New Testament, but there are a few that have no reference.

This chart is also found in the Orthodox Study Bible (p. 1822).
