Part 5 - "Replacing Judas Iscariot" (Acts 1:12-26) - Jesus' apostles returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives where they had just watched Him ascend back to heaven. There they rejoined the rest of His disciples, which included the women, Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Jesus' brothers. They were all of one accord and continued in prayer waiting for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Peter then stood up and addressed an issue that needed to be resolved before Pentecost, the choice of a replacement for Judas Iscariot to be "numbered" among them and take part in their ministry. This morning, we examine their choice of Matthias as the 12th apostle and consider whether they were in God's will in doing so or not.
