The Bible also lists the 12 apostles in Mark 3:16-19 and Luke 6:13-16 with slight differences in the names. Most Bible scholars agree that Thaddaeus was also known as “Judas, son of James” (Luke 6:16) and Lebbaeus (Matthew 10:3). Simon the Zealot was also known as Simon the Canaanite (Mark 3:18).
Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus, was replaced in the twelve apostles by Matthias (see Acts 1:20-26)
