We research in Acts 1:15-16, put up Ascension, Peter addressed the brothers, some 120 followers of Jesus. Peter reminded them of the scriptural suggestion that a person fill the office of Judas Iscariot, the betrayer. All the unique twelve have been chosen and named by Jesus, Himself. How then to uncover the anointed apostle in His absence?
Peter outlined specific standards: that it’s a person who walked with them from the time of Jesus’ baptism until His Ascension, a person who may testify to the resurrection, who beloved Jesus when He was an unknown carpenter, and when He spoke of the cross and different teachings that introduced on His abandonment.
The group of followers nominated two males: Joseph Barsabbas and Matthias. Peter proposed that they pray and draw heaps and by this way, Matthias was chosen to hitch the Eleven.
His title implies “reward of God,” and even though not described by title anyplace else within the New Testomony, Matthias is an occasion of a single who remained trustworthy and accepted the responsibility offered him. He preached in Cappadocia, Jerusalem, alongside the shores of the Caspian Sea, and Ethiopia. Accounts differ as to the martyrdom of Saint Matthias some point out he died by stoning in Jerusalem, and different people by crucifixion in Colchis.
