Resources for the disciples?
Hi, I'm looking to learn more about the 12 disciples and their lives, namely their struggles that they went through and also the sacrifices they made, their mindset and mentality. I've read through the gospels and epistles to learn more, but I was wondering if anyone knows any resources to find out more about the 12 disciples and perhaps even early Christians?
There was a book called Jesus freaks that explains where and how the 12 disciples were martyred. Pretty interesting actually.
Acts is a great resources within the Bible!
Something I have done in the past: go to biblegateway.com and input the name of a disciple in the search bar. Seeing where their names are referenced throughout the Bible and reading the verses that come up helped me get a better sense of their individual experiences.
I personally really like reading through the book of Acts 🙂
I also recommend watching movies that revolve around the lives of the disciples, like "Paul, apostle of Christ". They are hard, but give an idea of the hardships they had to go through for us to be here today.
