Learning the Names of the Disciples

This ministry idea shared by one of our readers, Linda M Howard from First Baptist Church Tyrone, GA.
I do have something I would like to share with you so you can share it with others. I wanted my class to learn the disciples but couldn’t find any ‘help’ when searching the internet. So I decided to put them in alphabetical order and I was amazed at how easy it was then. This is the results:
A ~ Andrew
B ~ Bartholomew
J ~ James, James, Judas, Judas, John
M ~ Matthew
P ~ Peter, Philip
S ~ Simon
T ~ Thomas
They loved learning this and wanted to say them every time we met. One asked if they could learn the Books of the Bible in Alphabetical order! If you want to use Thaddaeus, you can add him in the “T” list and take out one Judas.
Hope this will be as much fun for others as it was for us.

  1. I learned a poem at DVBS from a missionary when I was in grade school…. I have forgotten the very last part and haven’t been able to locate anyone else that remembers it…

    “These are the twelve disciples names, Simon, Peter, Andrew, John and James…To two pair of brothers that fished by the sea Jesus said, Come ye after me. James the Less, and Jude were called too, Phillip also and Bartholomew…….

    I know the other names are Matthew, Thomas, Judas….

    I’ve been trying to remember the last part for several years… can anyone help.me???
