We conclude with the fourth episode in our four-part series on the Cosmic Citizen on the 12 apostles of Jesus of Nazareth.  After exploring the first eight apostles, we next turn to the last four apostles: James and Judas Alpheus—the "twins," Simon Zelotes, and Judas Iscariot.   Why might the Bible have said so little about "James the Lesser," and Jude, Thaddeus or Lebbeus? Was Simon Zelotes truly zealous?
Was Judas's "refus[ing] to confide in, or freely fraternize with, his fellow apostles" his downfall?

Our hosts, Paula Thompson, Christilyn Biek-Larson and Andre Radatus explore the remarkable profiles of these last four men plumbed in Paper 139 of The Urantia Book.
We think you'll enjoy this study and find curious, as most all students eventually do, how much more common these men were than holy and how wonderfully representative they were of the gamut of humanity.

We will invite a variety of guests on this topic throughout the series to get their perspective on these apostles.
How were these men challenges for Jesus and how did they manage to grow progressively, spiritually, and faithfully despite numerous preconceived ideas about God, Jesus' mission, and what was necessary to growth in faith toward God.
