Some say that a role model they want to resemble is the Apostle Paul and some say the Apostle Peter or John.
As Christians, it seems to make sense that they want be an apostle such as Paul, Peter or John.

For these reasons some parents give the name of Paul, Peter or John to their kids.
It means that they admire and try to imitate the thoughts or the behaviors of the apostles in the age of First Coming Christ Jesus.
Then it looks simple to resemble the apostles. It is to follow what they kept in the Early Church 2,000 years ago.

Eph 2:19~20 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.

Let’s find out what the apostles were keeping in the Early Church established by Christ Jesus.

First of all, they kept the Passover of the New Covenant.
In the Last Supper of the Passover, there were Paul, Peter and John and the other apostles with Christ Jesus.

Lk 22:15~20 And He[Jesus] said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.” After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you.” And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”

If Christians don’t follow the thought and behaviors of the apostles who kept the Passover, what on earth can they resemble the apostles in the Early Church?
If they deny God’s commands or refuse to keep the Passover, it is very contradiction and inconsistency.

For being built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, we certainly have to keep the Passover.

    I agree with you! If someone really wants to be like one of the Apostles in the Early Church, he has to follow what they kept, especially the Passover. The Passover was designated as the New Covenant by Jesus Christ and He eagerly wanted to keep it with His disciples before He would be crucified.

    In order to have the same faith as the apostle,
    We must observe the Passover as the Bible teaches us.

    Indeed, we're no longer aliens and foreigners, but the children of promise within the Spirit and the Bride. The Bile wrote about the forefathers, who have been saved. The common thing found in them is that all of them were so faithful to God's words, and the Bible wrote their beliefs detail by detail. We'll also be saved when we follow their examples shown in following Christ Jesus. The new covenant was established to the detriment of Christ Jesus. We can learn what the new covenant is and keep the truths of life while studying the Bible in Zion. The Bible described what we have to do foe being saved.

    We must follow God's command and one of the thing is the Passover.
    As apostles did, we also have to keep the Passover.


  • 2021-01-06 13:13

    For sure, if want to be like Apostle Paul, Peter, or John, we must do what they have done 2000 years ago according to the teachings of Jesus. All the apostles have kept the New Covenant which Jesus established for our salvation. Therefore, we shall all follow and keep the New Covenant in order to resemble them.

    If you see someone who is worthy to be praised by many people, you would like to resemble that kind of certain person.
    I think It is natural, but not many of them are aware of what they had done.
    As the above said, people want to resemble the apostles such as Paul and Peter, however, do you know what kind of lives they spent during their life time?
    they spent hard time to keep their faith in God! How?
    They had to keep all the laws of Christ that they were given from Jesus such as the Passover and the Sabbath day and so on.
    If we really want to resemble them, we must follow what they had done 2,000 years ago. furthermore, we should think of why they were so eager to keep the new covenant, It is because those teachings were established by sacrifice of Jesus on the cross...

    It is a very important matter to imitate the faith of the apostles. If we imitate their faith, we will be able to enter heaven just as they did. Naming similar to the names of the apostles seems to have that meaning. I also want to be a child of God who keeps the Passover eagerly like Jesus and the apostles.


  • 2021-01-06 13:35

    What Jesus and the apostles kept for the salvation is the truth. And they kept the Passover for the salvation. We must keep the Passover to go to heaven.


  • 2021-01-06 14:13

    You are right! We have to resemble of thoughts of Apostles like Paul,Peter and John who kept the laws and feasts of New Covenant. Let's keep the Passover of the New Covenant.

    The Bible teaches us to build our faith on the foundation of the apostles and prophets. What truth did the apostles and prophets have and deliver ? It was the truth of New Covenant including the Passover. So we all should be the ministers of the New Covenant !

    Through keeping the Passover of the New Covenant as following the teachings of Jesus and apostles, we can receive salvation. Let's have firm faith and keep the truth of New Covenant like apostles.

    Among many people in this world, we are chosen to follow God's commandments.Let us keep it tiil the end.

    Absolutely right! We should follow what the apostles were keeping in the Early Church established by Christ Jesus. The truth of salvation should be What Jesus kept.

    If you want to resemble the Apostle Paul, the Apostle Peter or John, remember what they had done. And try to do what they had done. If you do that, you are the Apostle Paul, the Apostle Peter or John.
