- The text says they were CHOSEN
- They were EYE WITNESSES to the resurrected Christ. (the criterion for being considered apostle)
They were all of Jewish descent (for several we only know them by the greek names rather than theur native Aramaic names; including Yeshua).
The Christ told them not to leave Jerusalem
Key Verse: v.8 "But you will receive power, and you will be my witness to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and even the REMOTEST PARTS OF THE WORLD..."
Alot of people can get caught up only.focusing on Jerusalem and not to the ends of the world.
Your work does not end in your Jerusalem. It ends with the ends of the world.
"And surely I will be with you always until the end of the age."
