Twelve Unlikely Men

Mark 3:13-19

Three sets of brothers. Two nicknamed "sons of thunder." One a devoted zealot. Still another, a hated tax collector. Perhaps never a more unlikely calling of men to be paradigms of leadership and highly-favored representatives. And yet, they are forever known as the Twelve Disciples.

Ever wondered why these men were chosen? What was it about them? Were they natural leaders? Were they rich -- born into nobility, destined by family heritage? From all the crowds that followed Him, why did Jesus choose these men in particular, and for what purpose? Tom Pennington in his series Twelve Unlikely Men opens Mark's Gospel and takes you on a personal biography of what Scripture says about each man.
