Simon Peter Was He Simon or Was He Peter video (Luke 6:12-16). We learn the twelve were divided into three groups, or three teams, of four. Each group had a leader. Simon Peter was the leader of the first group and also, as we will see, the leader of the twelve. Philip was the leader of group two and James son of Alphaeus was the leader of group three. Jesus established an order of leaders among leaders with Simon Peter being the leader of all.

Simon Peter Was He Simon or Was He Peter video (Luke 6:12-16)

Scriptures: Acts 1:8; Ephesians 2:19-20; Acts 2:42; Luke 6:12-16; 1 Corinthians 9:5; Matthew 10:2; Luke 6:14; John 1:42; John 1:42; Matthew 16:15-19; Luke 22:31-34

Simon (whom he also named Peter),

Philip,

James son of Alphaeus

There are always three groups of four.

Simon (whom he named Peter), his brother Andrew, James, John,

Philip, Bartholomew (Nathanial), Matthew, Thomas,

James son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called the Zealot, Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

The first name in all four lists is always Simon Peter and in his group are always Andrew, James and John. In every list they are the first four. Andrew, James, and John are moved around, but Simon Peter is always first and these four are always in group one. Group two is always the same with Philip, Bartholomew (Nathanial), Matthew, and Thomas. Philip is always first, but Bartholomew, Matthew, and Thomas are moved around. Group three is always James son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot. James son of Alphaeus is always first. Judas Iscariot is always last. Simon the Zealot and Judas son of James are sometimes moved around… (continue sermon notes)
