Disciples Ages
« on: May 29, 2006, 07:29:45 PM »

Dear Mr. Smith,
I was just curious. How old do you think the disciples were when they were following Jesus? I've heard that they were young men, even teenagers. (Peter being the oldest, because he was the only one mentioned that paid the temple tax)

Dear Rachel:
I would suppose that they were all at least 30 years of age. Jesus was 30 years of age, and anyone serving in the Tabernacle in Israel had to be at least 30 years of age, as was Joseph 30 years of age when he began witnessing to Pharaoh.  Paul  was surely in his forties when he was called, seeing that after 25 years of ministry, he refers to himself as "paul the aged." Paul was no "doctor of the law" in his teens, that's for sure, neither would he be considered "aged" at age 18 plus 25 = 43/
