Twelve Apostles

As described by the New Testament of the Bible, the twelve Apostles (or twelve disciples or simply Apostles) were the primary followers of Jesus of Nazareth. Other early prominent Christians, most notably Paul of Tarsus, were also called Apostles, but were not included among the twelve.
