For all their importance, most of the apostles of Jesus have very little on record either of what they said or what they did. For some, we do not have a single word that they spoke, and others appear only as a name in a list. Apart from Peter and John, they all pass from our view as individuals after the first chapter of Acts; James only reappears in time to be executed by Herod. Like all of us, these 'little people' worshipped, worked and went. But then the whole purpose of our lives, as theirs, is not that we should leave a name for ourselves, but that we should exalt the name of Christ. John the Baptist set the compass bearing for the journey of the apostles of Christ" and for all who would follow them: 'He must become greater; I must become less' (John 3:30). Few have exhibited this so well as the twelve apostles.
