What were the professions of the twelve apostles? I know four were fishermen. What about the rest?
The original twelve apostles were:
|Simon Peter or Cephas||fisherman - Matthew 4:18|
|Andrew||fisherman - Matthew 4:18|
|James||fisherman - Matthew 4:18|
|John||fisherman - Matthew 4:18|
|Nathaniel or Bartholomew|
|Levi or Matthew||tax collector - Matthew 10:3|
|James the son of Alphaeus or Cleopas|
|Simon, the Zealot|
|Judas the son of James or Labbaeus Thaddaeus|
Two apostles were replaced:
|Matthias replaced Judas Iscariot|
|Paul replaced James||tent maker - Acts 18:2-3|
Nothing is said in the Bible regarding the occupations of the rest.
