Summary

As in the case of the Matthean Genealogy, our understanding of the summoning of the Twelve Apostles in Matthew 10 depends heavily upon the meaning of names. Not only their meaning, but their placement within Matthew’s list and their language of origin, taken in context of the broader narrative—all of which is amplified by the importance of the number twelve as a metaphor for the tribes of Israel.

Richard and Fr. Marc discuss Matthew 10:1-2.
