Talmidim & Emissaries Of Yeshua, Disciples & Apostles of Jesus
Unity Consciousness #536


CJB Words Become KJV Words:
H:talmid becomes scholar OT and disciple NT
H:talmidim is not in OT, becomes disciples NT
H:emissaries is not in OT, becomes apostles NT
OT = Old Testament and NT = New Testament

Meanings & Differences

In the general sense, all of the following words mean: to be a follower of someone and their teachings: talmidim, disciples, emissaries, apostles.

Based on how these words are used in context, there is a difference between a talmid (disciple) and an emissary (apostle). In the general sense, the difference seems to be one of greater responsibility, not simply different or additional duties.

“After this, the Lord appointed seventy other talmidim and sent them on ahead in pairs to every town and place where he himself was about to go.” They had the power to heal the sick and cast out demons. (Luke 10:1)

“When day came, he called his talmidim and chose from among them twelve to be known as emissaries:...” (Luke 6:13)

“Not all are emissaries, are they? Not all are prophets, are they? or teachers? or miracle-workers?” (1 Corinthians 12:29)

“Furthermore, he gave some people as emissaries, some as prophets, some as proclaimers of the Good News, and some as shepherds and teachers. (Ephesians 4:11)

When Jeshua (Jesus) started talking about eating his flesh and drinking his blood, many talmidim stopped following him. (John 6)

Jeshua (Jesus) Uses An Islamic Greeting

“In the evening that same day, the first day of the week, when the talmidim were gathered together behind locked doors out of fear of the Judeans, Yeshua came, stood in the middle and said, “Shalom aleikhem!” (John 20:19, 26)

(CJB) “They met with the congregation there for a whole year and taught a sizeable crowd. Also it was in Antioch that the talmidim for the first time were called “Messianic.” (UC534)
(KJV) “And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.” (Acts 11:26)

Bottom Line

Whether a talmid (disciple), emissary (apostle), prophet, teacher or follower in any way of whatever it is, you must be a scholar, dedicated as an Initiate of Learning, otherwise you will become a slave in the worst ways of that to which you believe – not necessarily due to the teaching itself but due to abandoning the freedom forces of understanding.
