The Twelve

A few weeks ago, a guy in my men's group asked if we could do a study of what happened to 'The Twelve' Apostles. Could we? Sure. But, for quite a few of The Twelve there isn't much material to work with. As I sit in my office this afternoon gathering and preparing a Bible study on the life and times of Matthias, I am half tempted to make up some cool stories about what happened to him from Acts 1 onward. I more fully understand the temptation to fill in the narrative gaps, and that's without the gnostic ambitions of making Matthias say what I want him to say. It is of little surprise that so many pseudopigraphal works exist. But I'll try not to make another for Thursday night :)
