The Thirteenth Tribe

The original twelve apostles of the Son-of-God are listed in the bible's Matthew 10:2-4,

These are their names— 
  • Simon (who is called Peter) 
  • and his brother Andrew; 
  • James son of Zebedee, 
  • and his brother John; 
  • Philip 
  • Bartholomew; 
  • Thomas 
  • Matthew the tax collector; 
  • James son of Alphaeus, 
  • Thaddaeus; 
  • Simon the Zealot 
  • Judas Iscariot, who betrayed the Son-of-God. 
The Bible also lists the twelve apostles in Mark 3:16-19 and Luke 6:13-16. 

A comparison of the three passages shows a couple of minor differences in the names. It seems that Thaddaeus was also known as “Judas, son of James” in Luke 6:16, and Lebbaeus in Matthew 10:3. 

Simon the Zealot was also known as Simon the Canaanite, in Mark 3:18. 

Judas Iscariot, who betrayed the Son-of-God, was replaced of the twelve apostles by Matthias, as noted in Acts 1:20-26. 

Some Bible teachers view Matthias as an 'invalid' apostle and believe that Paul was God's choice to replace Judas Iscariot as the twelfth apostle. However, the observer finds that comparison in error. 

For instance, why must there have been twelve Apostles and not ten? Was it in mimicry of the original number of archangels, who the observer's studies show actually numbered twelve and not ten? Is this the reason Matthias was brought in to replace Judas, in order to round out the number?

Speaking of Judas, was his treachery in mimicry of God's self-indulgent archangel Lucifer? Was Judas Iscariot that group's version of Lucifer?

Does Paul, who came along after the Son-of-God's resurrection to prove that all who follow are just as deserving -- does he, as a thirteenth apostle, symbolize the completion of the twelve just as the Son-of-God completed his archangels by being their first and last?

Hard for we modern types to understand, for we've had the knowledge of God excised from us, but it was written that God's first angel was formed as the first and last of the archangels. Which makes him as their thirteenth.

This glaring example may well be why the world was taught to vilify the number thirteen. For, to the observer's reasoning, that number refers to all we who have accepted our return to heaven through the Son-of-God, as being his 13th tribe.

It is a paradigm to which the Christians claim exclusivity, but it it not theirs. It belongs to us; we who have escaped Lucifer's world.
